Bring a no cost gift for the gift grab. No Cost means grab something you've already got lying around the house that you want to get rid of and think someone else may enjoy. Gifts can be funny, silly, useful, nice, gag, whatever!
There will be a sign up list going around in Relief Society beginning this Sunday for desserts. If you have a specialty dessert that you'd like to share please get your name on the list. Bring desserts to the church the night of the Progressive dinner when we meet for carpools. All desserts will be collected and taken to the final home for set up.
It is going to be a great night be sure to get it on your calendar!
Please remember that this Sunday is the last day to turn in gift donations for Bishop's Christmas. We have been assigned gifts for teens, boys and girls. Please, while you are out shopping this weekend pick up something extra that you could place into the donation bin this Sunday. Here are a few ideas for you:
- board games
- handheld electronic games
- toiletry sets
- make up
- blow dryers
- curling irons
- iTunes gift cards
- movie theater tickets
- balls (football, soccer, basketball)
- name brand socks (Adidas, Nike, Reebok, etc.)
- sports memorabilia
Remember all gifts are to be NEW and UNWRAPPED. No gift cards with the exception of I-tunes cards. Thank you for your service!

Good evening Sisters. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, involves the production or purchase of three more quilts or blankets for Bishop's Christmas. You may select any size or color that you like, but it is essential that it be completed and returned to the RS Presidency no later than November 27th. You have 13 days, exactly 312 hours, to complete your assignment. As always, should any member of your team be in need of more fabric or technical sewing advice Sister Dooley may be of great assistance to you, please contact her. This message will self-destruct in five seconds but may reappear daily until our quota is filled.

The Meldrum's Garden
Bro. Meldrum's garden was first. He showed us his rows of lush raspberry bushes and strawberries that have been composted with plenty of Tagro. He has offered both raspberry and strawberry starts to anyone who is interested.
Bro Meldrum stressed the importance of digging your soil deep and using lots of amendments (such as Tagro and composted leaf mulch) to keep the soil fertile year after year.
Territorial Seed company seeds.
These peas were planted in December under plastic milk and juice jugs (with the bottom cut out). The jugs act like a tiny greenhouse and help the peas get a good early start.
(look at that great rainbow!!)
The Hjelm's garden
Like Bryce, Rick stressed the importance of adding good amendments to your soil. He adds sawdust and manure and tills it in really good every year. He too has devised systems to keep his tomato plants warm during the early spring with mini greenhouses made out of wood frames and clear garbage sacks.
Thank you brothers for your kindness and generosity with your time. We thoroughly enjoyed your gardens. I know that I came home inspired and will put to use what you taught us.

Seventeen Lake City sisters toured the home and gardens of our stake patriarch, James Ely and his wife, Rita, on Tuesday, May 11th. They graciously led us through their abode telling us the tales behind the beautiful treasures they brought back from China. The gardens were exquisitely maintained. I asked Brother Ely how much time it took them every day to keep their garden in such beautiful condition. He replied, "All of it." Thank you, Elys, for your willingness to share with us!
