Seeds of Hope Returns to Grace

Grace has arranged with two farmers to come and set up their
Seeds of Hope Farmers Market
every Saturday beginning on June 8th from 9 – 1.

Please come out and support the farmers with your purchases of fresh produce. That is wonderful news since most of the recipients of the vouchers last year were unable to use their vouchers.

Now talking about the SOH vouchers we need volunteers to be able to hand them out to the people that will come on Tuesday, June 4th from 9-1. There is a signup sheet in the Narthex for you to sign up to help. If you have done it before you know how easy and rewarding it is. If you have not been able to do it before please consider doing it you can be taught that morning. Unfortunately Bill will not be able to help but he will be there to help any way that he can.
