DECEMBER 16. . . DON’T GET caught with your gifts unwrapped! At least not when Bonnie and Mary will do the job for you. Once again our inveterate volunteers, Bonnie and Mary, are wrapping gifts at Pigeon River Crossing Mall (formerly Belz Mall) near the Burke’s outlet. They’ll be there every day through Christmas Eve from 11am to 5pm, and they do a fabulous job. All donations for the gift wrapping goes to the SPOT spay/neuter program. We and the pets love you Bonnie and Mary!
Several lucky people bought bottles of pure maple syrup grown, tapped, processed, and brought to us directly from Michigan’s upper peninsula. John, himself an organic farmer, brought us the syrup and some maple sugar from his neighbors in Rudyard, the Bestemans. We have just a few bottles left, and it is exceptional. John also brought down some truly wild (not cultivated) wild rice. . . which is not technically a rice–it’s actually a seed. Did you know that wild rice can only be harvested by folks licensed to harvest it in the traditional way? So much to learn, so much good food! It’s nice to have friends willing to share the bounty of their region. Don’t miss out on our Northern treats!
