We will also be selling hot dogs, drinks and lots of yummy bake goods! A big thanks to the families that have been cleaning out their closets and bringing us their treasures to sell. We still have plenty of room for more items, so anything you find around the house that you no longer need, just drop off at the facility and we will take care of the rest. All money raised from the yard sale will benefit the Alzheimer's Association 2013 Memory Walk. Thanks to everyone for helping out such an important charity that has touched the lives of so many of us...." 

Gardening Tip: Keeping Pesky Pests From Veggies

  • From Alley Cat Pest Control"Thinking of planting a garden when the weather cools off? Here are a couple of tips for keeping the pests from snacking on your veggies. (1) Cayenne Pepper — Cayenne pepper is great for keeping bugs, especially ants, away from your garden. Simply sprinkle the spicy stuff on top of the dirt in your garden. You will have to add more on a regular basis as watering will wash it away. (2) Dish Soap — A dish soap and water solution sprayed over your plants is the perfect way to keep aphids away. In a clean spray bottle mix 1 part dish soap to 10 parts water. Spray it over your plants, and the aphids will go find their lunches elsewhere. A small amount of dish soap will not harm your plants or anyone who eats them."
