  •  America is a great place to live. It is not perfect, far from it – but it is better than any other nation I know.

    But America has drifted from the principles and standards of our forefathers.  This drifting is not for the better. We are not what we were in the past.

  •  Every year when summer squash and zucchini start coming in abundance I get asked how to preserve it. Here are the instructions from “So Easy to Preserve,” a food preservation resource from University of Georgia:

    Freezing summer squash – Choose young squash with tender skin. Wash and cut into one half inch slices. Water blanch three minutes. Cool promptly, drain and package, leaving one-half-inch headspace. Seal and freeze.

  •  This story may be read in the Book of Esther in the Old Testament of the Bible. I have condensed the story for you to read here in the paper if you like.

  • Yes, we are back in business full force at Renaissance Recycling!

    Here are some helpful hints that will help us to process recyclables much quicker and help tremendously with our amount of trash:

    Please remove lids from all bottles and jars (metal lids go in the tin can window), and make sure food is completely rinsed out of all containers. We are receiving some recyclables with quite a bit of food waste still in them and these cannot be recycled so they have to be thrown in the trash. Remember the idea is to reduce the amounts going to the landfill. 

  • Aletha Nicole Tharp and Blake Garrison Bault, both of Elizabethtown, announce their engagement and forthcoming marriage.

    In May, Patsy Thomas demonstrated to the Club how to make a fruit centerpiece.  She discussed how fruit provides lots of color, nutrients and taste and makes great gifts when cut and arranged into a beautiful bouquet or other types of arrangements.  We then were rewarded by getting to eat the different fruits that she provided.

    Our Club voted to donate $175 to the local 4-H Camp endeavor.
