Fall Heritage Festival II

Last year, when Franklin County dropped the Polly Crocket Festival, held here in Cowan, from its lineup of annual events, a lot of people were disappointed.  But the leadership of Cowan picked up the ball and created, to replace the Polly Crocket Festival, what was dubbed the "Fall Heritage Festival".  We all owe a debt of gratitude to the promoters of Cowan and leaders across the community, because the inaugeral Fall Heritage Festival of 2014 was nothing short of astounding.  Musical performances on three

Seasonal Offering for Haven of Hope and Blue Monarch Ministry

We are blessed to have not one, but two great ministries to women and families in need in our area.  The Haven of Hope provides shelter to abused women and their families, and the Blue Monarch does this, as well as a course of life-improvement services to help women get back on their feet.  On Sunday, August 30, we will be showing a video from Blue Monarch that features some of the women who are, or have been, residents.  Anne Lorenz, the mission coordinator, will speak to the goals of the offering.

Garden Report

The gardening team has made plans for this spring's planting.  Our first project is to replant the beds we planted in turnip greens last fall with various spring/summer veggies that people can pick when they are ready.  We have expanded this space to the other side of the sidewalk, and are going to fence it in with a garden fence that can easily be put up and taken down.  The fence is to keep critters out, not people.  We plan to plant sugar snap peas or some other vine veggie on the fence itself.
