Good News/Bad News – The Graceful Gardeners have put their gardens to bed for a long winter’s nap. [That’s the bad news] Won’t be long, though, before images of next year’s beautiful vegetables dance in their heads.  In the meantime, a great big THANK YOU to all you gardeners who contributed their goodies and to every member who supported this mission by donating for those goodies.   The good news, make that GREAT NEWS, is contributions this year set a new record – $1,066.89!  That contribution to the Hummelstown Food Bank provides over 5,000 lbs of food to the needy of our community.  Thank you!
