Week 15 -- A Baby and A GOOD Night

As we greet Week 15, the GFC team is still giddy from the weekend's festivities.  First, Raindance Harvest welcomed a new addition to the family -- a baby boy.  Now that, my friends, is some beautiful locally-grown goodness. They had to skip the party Saturday, of course, but we raised a glass in honor of their happy news.  And we know they will have many GOOD nights as they greet the adventures ahead as new parents. Still grinning from the happy baby news, we were privileged to celebrate at Java's with many of you Saturday night for our first ever A GOOD Night event.  With about 200 revelers, the night was full of amazing local food, drink, music and art.  And it could not have happened without all of the hard work of those involved, as well as those who were able to attend.  It was a fine example of a pure community effort!  As Chris said, "It was beautiful to see how things came together, the product of each person’s part…a circus of activity, and a thing of beauty!"  For those of you who were unable to attend or weren't sure the party was for you, we hope to celebrate with you next year. We'll be posting some photos from the evening soon, as well highlights and all the GOOD work that went on to throw this shin-dig. Speaking of GOOD local stuff,  here's what's heading to your kitchens this week:

BREAD SHARE

The loaf that was missed a few weeks ago will be made up for on the last distribution day.  This is the baker Keith’s idea to help make the bread last a little beyond the end of distribution!
