Farmer’s Market to be a Collection Point Today
Today beginning at 10:00 AM there will be a collection point at the market for new or gently used toys, books and games to be given to the children at the Lenoir Community College shelter for flood victims. The children have been there a while and are bored. Let’s help the children and their parents make time pass quicker and happier until they are able to leave the shelter. This effort is sponsored by Alex Sugg Kennedy, 4H agent with the Lenoir County Cooperative Extension. Please come down and support Alex and her effort to make life easier for those who have lost their homes.

Rodney, the pork skin man will be at the market on Saturday. TC Smith will be there also if they can navigate the roads between their farm and the market.
Please keep the farmers in Eastern North Carolina, their families, their crops and their animals in your prayers.
