This year’s Dried Arrangement Benefit for the Food Pantry only netted $70 in donations. That doesn’t sound like much, but consider that only six people donated. I think the congregation is getting saturated with these items, so next year I will still provide what I can for those, who are interested in the plants and cuttings I have. Those who take something from me next year would then have to make a donation to the Food Pantry on their own. There will be no formal sample and order day, and no formal collection of donations. I am actually surprised it has gone on as long as it has.
With brotherly love,
