PEELING BACK THOSE POTATOES

Sal- I have an alternate suggestion. As I recall the sculpture is on a very nice walk that heads over the Miller’s river, along a path showing various tidal depths and leading to the park along the Charles. The problems are that people don’t know about it, and that Rutherford Avenue is a formidable barrier. With any luck, this will be better after the Rutherford reconstruction. So I vote, leave it where it is but make its location known. It’s worth the trouble of getting there even now.

Regards,

Rob Dinsmore

NEWS FROM HARVEST  ON VINE

Thank you so much for the great work you did in March and April. The Easter ham sign-up and distribution went flawlessly. Four hundred families received a spiral ham (avg. 8lbs.) with all trimmings. We also delivered roughly 70 baskets to shut-ins. Thank you for supporting us at the Harvest on Vine on April 19. It was the biggest crowd we’ve had in years. Roughly 250 people attended, and I am grateful for your generosity.

Set-up, Friday, May 24, 4  p.m.

Distribution, Tuesday, May 29, 7 p.m.
