Neighbors Helping Neighbors in Action

The FWC is all about giving and working together, especially when we have neighbors in need

Shannon Anderson, a fellow club member, recently had surgery on her hand making it very difficult to do every day things. We decided to *activate* “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” by setting up a Meal Train for her and her family (Family of 4 with two little ones). The FWC is helping out during the month of January. If you would be so kind to click on the link below and consider signing up to make & take a meal, or even order in food for them, it would be greatly appreciated.

Are your cookies ready?

The FWC Cookie & Candy swap is this Sunday! If you didn’t RSVP, it’s not too late to join in the fun. With apx. 30 women participating this year, there will be a yummy variety to choose from for a take home plate, and our hostess, Nicole, hinted that a delicious Poinsettia Punch will be served.

Take a moment from the hustle and bustle of work and family this holiday season to join in some fun with other Farmstead women. We hope to see you there!
