The Readyville FCE will hold its September meeting at Ferrell Hollow Farms on the 18th at 11:00 a.m.
The Ferrell Hollow Farms is a non profit farm for retired and disabled horses. Their mission is to help senior horses in need of sanctuary care. Mrs. Cindy Daigre and her husband and artist Alan Daigre are the owners of the farm. Mrs Daigre grows and produces her own herbs that are used in the care of the senior horses.
A $5.00 dollar box lunch picnic will be prepared by each FCE member to be shared with other members. The box fee will be left as a donation for Ferrell Hollow. Mrs. Daigre will lecture members on the purpose and mission of the farm along with her home-made lineament. A
tour of the farm and Alan Daigre's art studio will also be part of the afternoon.
Members are reminded to bring a lawn chair and items for the food baskets along with their yearbook. (canned fruits and other non-perishable items for local families)
Additionally any member who has a family member or acquaintance who is serving in the armed forces should bring that persons name and address so that we can begin to prepare for the Holiday Cookie distribution.
Readyville FCE T-shirts will be available and handed out to those in attendance.
