Last week Tri-County Paving used their trucks to deliver 4 truckloads of compost to the two-acre -convent garden. The gardens will grow organic vegetables to serve both the convent and the Little Falls Community High School in the Garden-to-Cafeteria program. This is the second year of the program. Sister Ruth, a horticulturalist, manages the Franciscan Sister’ organic garden and works directly with students and their supervisor. Sr. Ruth said that the project tripled the previous garden area. Vocational Agriculture Teacher, Doug Ploof, said, “The garden project has been a wonderful opportunity to teach sustainable agriculture to our students in horticulture and plant science.”
Over the weekend, too, St. Francis Music Center had the 2014 Dance Recital, coached by Trista LaFontnaine. Some of those girls are REALLY good. I particularly enjoy the youngest students. Each one does their own thing to their own timing—and they are so cute! Each dancer received a certificate and a medal.
Sunday afternoon I rode around campus looking for beauty. I found a lovely patch of blooming, yellow tulips in Deb’s Garden. And one tree in the orchard had a couple branches of white flowers.
We had a retirement party for Carol Isder who had worked at Clare Residence for 19 years. Thanks, Carol for you wonderful care of our sick Sisters, god bless you.
Have a safe weekend. Let’s all pray for our Veterans, living and deceased.
My blog will be short today because, my computer is ill and after lunch will get TLC from Lisa and Elsie.
God bless you.
