    RE: Help When You Need It.

    It is a consensus of opinion amongthe Franciscan Friends volunteers thateveryone who ever started a new projector decided to try a new craft, needs helpat one time. The new FranciscanFriends Helping Friends program mightbe the answer.

    The variety of talents among the vol-unteers covers just about every kind ofhandicraft you can imagine. For exam-ple, volunteers Dolores Dey and AlgeneFeuerstein know a variety of stitchingprojects and are both good knitters. CamMiles has become very skilled at scrap-booking. Many of the volunteers areexcellent quilters and love to help, too.Name your project and its likely youllfind help in this group.

    Heres how to do it. Most Fridaymornings between 10 a.m. and noon,the volunteer group meets at theCenter. It is best to call first to be sure.Then bring everything related to yourproject with you, such as a pattern,materials, and the part youve alreadydone and any equipment you need tocomplete your special project. Quiteoften, the solution is simple, but justunknown to you. It might just be astitch or process of some sort. Our vol-unteers are ready to help.

    Tickets for LIFE fest Are Now AvailableOn the Farm

    The warm spring rains and soothingsun have been a welcome sight aftersuch a long, cold season. Now, in themidst of summer, the fruit trees areoverflowing with ripe offerings. Fields ofbright grass wave in the soft breeze,awaiting cutting and baling. The manyvegetable gardens display an abundanceof fresh produce. Lazy summer daysmay tempt the young preschool chil-dren, but out on the farm, this season isalways one of the busiest.

    There is a cycle to the fruit harvest,when each crop ripens and is perfectfor picking. First are the cherries,ready in June; July is peaches, plumsand pears in August, apples (PaulaRed, Ida Red, Red and YellowDelicious) are all harvested inSeptember and October. Three typesof grapes are grown here as well. All ofthese fruits are canned or stored assoon as they are picked. Teams of vol-unteers work quickly to insure that nofruit or vegetable is wasted.

    Out in the fields, three cuttings ofhay are taken over the year. They arebaled and put up in the loft by volun-teers, ready for the Centers sheep,horses, goats and cows. Meanwhilearound the Centers buildings,flowerbeds, tree and bush-trimming andother ground maintenance are constant-ly tended. It is far from the lazy days ofsummer out at the farm.
