Program for April 23
Anita Moos is the Marketing and Outreach Manager for the Newark Natural Foods Co-op. since 1967 the co-op has been serving the Newark community with organic, clean and wholesome foods, most of it grown locally. After incorporating in 1975, the co-op has had two homes in the city and has, just last week, moved into its newest home in the Newark Shopping Center in the old Newark Department store location. Not only the 3,600 household members but the general public, as well, are invited to shop in their newly expanded produce, spices, vitamins and minerals, dairy, healthcare, and grocery departments. Cafe 67 will be opening soon. The co-op continues to serve its customers with an organic grocery store, community outreach rooms, educational programs, movies and lectures. The popular summer open-air farmers market will return in the parking lot May 3 through November.

Welcome baskets for camp counselors

Please bring your 40 specific items to the April 30 meeting and we will sort them into baskets. If you did not sign up to help, let Robin know this week.

Archaeology Festival needs you…

You don’t need to know the difference between jasper and flint. You just need to be a warm body eager to assist at the Iron Hill Archaeology and Heritage Festival, Sunday, May 3. Our club and several members have been huge supporters of the Iron Hill Museum and its programs over the years. Let Robin know what hours or jobs you can volunteer with.

Got Clean Hands?

The Board of Directors approved $100 for McVey Elementary School Nurse Marguerite Diehl to fund her hand washing project for kindergarteners. Not everyone comes to school knowing how to properly wash hands. The program teaches them the proper way to lather, scrub, and rinse, all to the tune of Happy Birthday (about 20 seconds long!). Germs away!

Mystery Dinner is no mystery to attendees

The annual Mystery Dinner Tour will commence on Saturday, May 23, at 4 p.m,, leaving parking lot of Pencader Heritage Museum. About one hour later we will arrive at a dining location of Steve Amick’s choice. So sign up with Steve for an enjoyable evening.

Thought for the Week:

Employment application blanks always ask who is to be notified in case of an emergency. I think you should write “a good doctor.”

Can’t make our meeting?

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.

All Rotarians are welcomed to attend another club’s meeting. Be prepared to pay for your meal and bring the makeup slip back to our secretary for attendance and invoice credit.
