FOPRL at the Market

A quick update for all of those who brought produce to the Saturday Market yesterday for the benefit of the Library Building Fund.  Heidi Baxter did a terrific job (as Theresa did two weeks ago) in taking on this task.  She spread her table with lots of herbs, flowers, chard, plums, beans, beets, potatoes, zucchini and apples (and probably some other edibles I've lost track of), let the buyers decide what was a fair donation for the library, and quickly sold out, garnering another $135.00 for the building fund.

This surely could be a repeat performance, except that August 25 was the last Saturday Market for the year.  But, maybe next year.  It is certainly the case that many people have extras from their gardens and don't necessarily have a way to spread that excess around.
