Got Blood? 8/07/2015

 

MGM logo_2

Got blood? If you’re reading this, the answer is obvious. And, most of us, if we’re lucky, will never have a need for more than we were born with. However, it doesn’t always work that way. Sometimes, in many peoples’ lives, there comes a time went they may need to depend on another person for one of the very things that gives life itself, blood. It’s that simple folks. We all have the gift of life flowing through our veins and arteries, so why wouldn’t one wish to perform one of the greatest acts of kindness possible and share that miracle of life? I would encourage you to think about what a difference you can make in the world and in the life of another human being by becoming a blood donor.

Blood Drop mgm 08.07.15

Lora and the crew from The Community Blood Bank, a LOCAL  concern, will be in the St. James Parrish Hall this Friday and they’re hoping that you’ll stop in with any questions or concerns you might have about the process, make a donation, and start a lifelong habit. They’ll treat you with TLC, crack a few jokes, give you a snack, and send you on your way. You’ll be a pint lighter, but somewhere, someone will have a better chance of surviving an accident or an operation because of you and that one simple act of kindness.

Stop at the MGM booth, say hello, and check out our stash of goodies.  We’ll be hawking the new 2014 t-shirts in different colors and styles. We’ll also have older MGM T-shirts, aprons, and MGM $5.00 GIFT CERTIFICATES that can be used at any vendor booth (great gift idea). All proceeds from sales and donations go to making the MGM work. You’ll also be able to enjoy great freshly brewed cup of coffee, on the house, courtesy of our friends at the Night and Day Coffee Shop, just up the street. They keep the wheels rolling for some of us folks at the MGM; thanks guys!

Here’s a list of scheduled vendors and their products for the week:

Keeney Farm, Cheryl will have cucumbers, summer squash, green beans,  green tomatoes, and garden onions. This is a sure sign of summer and a sure sign that summer produce will soon be in abundance from all the growers.

Hillstone will be on hand with their quality meats and great hot-dogs, just in time for the grilling season. Stock up on these dogs; you won’t find anything like them in any store.

Udder Merry Mac will be here this week with his great selection of lettuces, basil, English cukes, and other great hydro produce.

Highland Chocolates will at market with great white, dark, & milk chocolate products available in so many wonderful ways! My favorite, pretzel bark, what’s your’s?
