Rodger Williamson wrote about preparedness in his political opinion column last week, and this week I spent a lot of time and effort preparing for the winter storm.
I hung tarps at the entryway of the barn to keep the cold out and laid a lot of straw bedding for all the animals. I have ceramic heat lamps for the most vulnerable of our livestock. I prepared best I could to keep our animals safe in the forecast Artic blast coming through the area. I hope everyone in our area was able to prepare to stay warm and safe during this time of freezing temps.
Coosa Fancy Organic Farm on Hwighway14 has started a new season of Customer Supported Agriculture (CSA). Help support Coosa Fancy and enjoy 10 weeks of freshly harvested, organically grown seasonal produce! Spring Session: March 23 – May 25 and Summer Session: June 15 – August 17. You can also purchase their spring and summer CSA together for 15% off! (That’s three FREE weeks!)
The CSA system offers customers the opportunity to support their local farms and producers via an initial buy-in price, which is then returned through weekly shares of fresh produce. This helps the farm by providing the initial capital needed for operation costs. Call 205-552-4592 or sign up on their website at https://coosa-fancy.com/shop.
Tonight, January 19, is Karaoke Night at Coosa Live (formerly known as Equality Performing Arts Center). Come enjoy an evening out enjoying live music.
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, as well as some of the potluck offerings.
Sunday, January 21, Equality Methodist Church invites all to the Equality Methodist Church’s Men’s Community Breakfast at 8 a.m. in the EMC fellowship hall. To celebrate the New Year, the women of Equality Community are invited to attend this delicious breakfast! Speaker Gary Taunton will share some of his missionary experiences with us.
Great food and fellowship make this a wonderful community-wide event to kick off 2024. Ladies, the men are cooking for us! Guests, visitors and Equality neighbors are invited to attend. All welcome!
Thursday, January 25, at 6 p.m. is the Equality Neighborhood Watch meeting at the Equality Volunteer Fire Department Hall (old Masonic Hall building) on Highway 9. Come join us for an informative evening, enjoy the potluck, and fellowship with your Equality neighbors.
