Time for another Note already? Well, I am trying to get caught up with all of my duties and writing a Note to you is one of my favorites! Additionally, Maria told me she had an increase in volunteers after my last Notes so I needed to say "thank you!" I also thought I would let you know about some upcoming events in the community and some with TCP. Hope you enjoy catching up.
TCP Resale Shop is sponsoring Truck Drives around town and next week we're partnering with PCRMC! You don't have to be a PCRMC employee to drop off your unwanted furniture, clothing and/or household items between 2:30 and 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24th! The truck will also be parked at the Bond Clinic from 10 a.m. until noon that day!
We are also going to be at MS&T in May when the students clean up and move out. We hope this will cut down on landfill waste and give us items to sell and turn into great programs here at The Partnership. If you would like to help at one of these events please contact Martha by email or phone 573.368.2849. Thank you!
The Rolla Community Garden's (RCG) official kick-off for the 2013 growing season will be held April 20th at 10 a.m. The garden is located in back of the Rolla Recycling Center on McCutchen Drive in Rolla.
Some people have already been out planting. Last Saturday a young gardener was spotted planting Little Marvel shell peas. If you would like to join, you can rent a 10'x15' plot for $10 by contacting Faith Ann Barnes 368-8001 or by email.
The Community Partnership's Fit Helps program has been able to help the RCG get "up and growing" and we are proud of their great success! We can only hope and pray that this year provides a little more rain for our gardening friends.
I know I can hardly wait to get outside and start digging in the dirt too. Happy planting everyone!
Jean and Capable Kids and Families will be very busy in the next couple of weeks. CKF has focus groups planned this week for the research study we have secured with the University of Chicago. A trip to Purina farms for families is also coming up soon.
Young Parent and the Independent Living Program participants will be having an Education Night tonight. Several fortunate attendees will also be awarded MoSci scholarships.
I will let you know more about these events in my next Notes. You can also let me know if there is a program you would like to hear more about. I look forward to hearing from you!
