And the Garden Grows

     The garden is growing and growing and growing even in a drought! And this is happening because of the many volunteers that have helped in the garden. We’ve had over 20 volunteers help in all aspects of the garden from building beds, filling them with soil, planting, weeding, mowing around the beds, mulching, harvesting, and more. If you know of someone that would enjoy some fresh vegetables, let us know!

    A group recently enjoyed making pesto together. If you are interested in a salsa making day, let us know and you’ll go home with salsa for winter enjoyment!

Fall Festival

     Time is flying by. Before we know it, school will be back in session, the air will have a crispness to it to remind us fall is on the way. With hot temperatures it’s hard to believe fall is coming soon and with that it’s Fall Festival time for Linville Creek Church. Yes, that’s it, Fall Festival, and all the excitement it can bring. It also means soup making, gathering items for the yard sale area and pie baking to name a few. Lots of helpers are always needed for a successful fund raiser. So, think of your talents and let Judy Wine (896-1147) know how you can help.  There will be a meeting yet to be scheduled. The time and date will be announced in the church bulletin. Mark your calendars for October 9!
