Volunteers would be helping to direct folks in making their salads, churning their butter, arranging their floral bouquets, and setting up their picnic areas.

Many Thanks to Dean Tischer from Troop 24

Dean undertook building a new coop for our chickens living in the front pen for his Eagle Scout  service project. He did all the fund raising to purchase the building supplies and with the help of some of his troop members the coop was built and completed last weekend. Our chickens will soon be moving out of their old worn out coop and into this finely constructed new one.

Thanks again to Dean and Troop 24 for all their hard work!
