Summer is in full effect
Children have been released and the heat is coming strong
A good life is a collection of moments. - Denis Waitley
Grateful for a wonderful staff who love the work they do and the lives they touch.
Another School Year Has Passed So Quickly
We served thousands of children from surrounding counties
The past school year has been a great experience, and I'm thankful for the teachers who have taken the time to organize field trips for their students. You could hear the children full of excitement as they come off the bus where Roddy, our Great Berenese, comes to greet them.
Roddy is our gentle giant who loves children. Sometimes you can catch teasing the sheep for a little fun.
As our busy season of field trips slows down, my goal is to engage with you more. To touch on topics that affect us all, to let you know more about the activity within our communities, to create more workshops that you can benefit from, and to discover new ways to assist in farm to school.
I hope you have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day Weekend with loved ones. And please remember to stay hydrated! It's going to be extremely hot this weekend.
To the families who have experienced loss of valiant soldiers, may you and your loved ones feel comfort and peace.
