Coldest day so far

November 14, 2015

I know many of you got a frost last night, but I was only at 39 for the low, but still nippy. It made it up to a balmy 67 this afternoon. It did not hurt any summer annuals yet!

I spent the day winding up my week-long activities, writing a few columns and preparing for an open house I am having tomorrow. A friend of mines daughter, Gracie is the student leader for a service learning project at the LR Episcopal School. Homes for Haiti is a non-profit, student-run organization that has raised a total of $68,000. It partners with the Clinton Haiti Relief Fund to help build back Haiti after the devastating earthquake in 2010. Within this program, students from Arkansas use scrap materials from their art rooms to create small pins, magnets, and ornaments in the shape of small houses. homes for haiti pin.Each of these pins has a heart on the roof representing the love and support of the Haiti community from students within United States, and when wearing a pin, awareness is spread throughout the community. This organization has an extremely powerful message especially coming from America’s youth. homes for haiti project pins.

Gracie will be at my house tomorrow (Sunday, Nov.15) with student made pins and ornaments–each of which is only $5. All proceeds are donated to the Clinton Haiti Relief Fund. If you have time, stop by between 1 -5 tomorrow. You can see what is available, have a drink and some snacks and visit.
