Migrant Worker Welcome. Our date is Saturday June 17  – we are looking for help to set up our store on the Friday afternoon at 1:00pm. We are still in search of a standalone basketball hoop that we could position in the backyard to be enjoyed by our migrant worker guests and  enjoyed by the community at other times.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Sharon
