It’s still mighty warm this week. Lots of our neighbors have had some rainfall as of late, here, not so much. It will be nice when we do get it. When I got up this morning, Molly, my lab, was lying on the air conditioning vent. Times have changed. When I was growing up, I remember the dogs digging out a cool spot in the dirt. Our air conditioner was a box fan in the bedroom window at night. It felt pretty good about 2 o’clock in the morning.

Our Northern Stokes Food Pantry could still use some help on the first and the third Thursday of every month. They also could use volunteers on Wednesdays to help unload the truck that comes in. Donations of food and monetary donations are always needed and very much appreciated. Also, dog and cat food donations for families with pets would also be a big help. Our fur babies are family too. If you can’t come by the food pantry and would like to make a monetary donation, you may send it to Northern Stokes Food Pantry c/o Joel Moorefield 1565 Moorefield Road Danbury, NC 27016.
