Seems that summer heat is here, and I am glad I got my garden pretty much in because with the heat I can only work out there for a short time before I must cool off and rehydrate. But this also means lots of veggies to go along with the CSA I have with Coosa Fancy, which continues to please me with each week’s items.
Those sashimi cucumbers are fabulous, as well as the squash; not like zucchini, but meatier and delicious raw, as well as sautéed; as well as salad mix and carrots. I was going to ferment the carrots, but after tasting them I chopped them up and put them in my salad, as well as some of the greens. I saved the rest of the carrot greens to go in a future stock.
Now on to Equality Volunteer Fire Department (EVFD), they are absolutely needed by our community. Ever thought of volunteering? There are many opportunities, and they need our support to survive… it is in their name Equality “VOLUNTEER” Fire Department. Without volunteers there is not a volunteer fire department, so they NEED you!
It is not all about fighting fires and going on emergency calls; there are a lot of areas where volunteers can help, even donating a baked good for the monthly bake sale. Volunteers are welcome to help with all the activities.
Also, everyone is welcome to attend their first and third Monday training meetings, even if only to just watch the firefighters do their training.
The next Equality Neighborhood Watch meeting is Thursday, June 22, at 6:30 p.m. Come and hear what is happening in the community, as well as some food and fellowship. Bring a dish to pass if you wish, but not mandatory or expected.
Equality Performing Arts Center (EPAC) has Open Mic Night tonight, Friday, June 9, 7-9 p.m. Next Friday, June 16, is Karaoke.
While it is not mandatory, you are encouraged to bring a dish of shareable food for our “potluck,” and if you can afford to drop something into the donation jar for the music, it helps keep the lights on. The EPAC provides free coffee, iced tea, water, and fresh-popped popcorn.
I depend upon my readers to share with me what is happening within your organizations, churches, neighborhoods, groups, or family to share in next week’s column. Please contact me; call or text 256-531-6460 or email at email@example.com.
