Caesar Salad Kits! stop buy a grab one. Several cases donated and needs put to good use.

The Murray Church of Christ Food Pantry was donated a bunch of salad earlier in the week that we need to move along faster than our current methods. 😉 So, calling all caeser salad lovers! We have a bunch of these and anyone that would like some are welcome to come get as much as they can use. Unfortunately, the Food Pantry hours are almost over for today, and I want to go get my garden planted before it rains. But I will open The Pantry up extra hours tomorrow, Friday from 9 am to Noon for anyone that wants to get either salad or other groceries from here. So, come and get them while supplies last!

Happy Easter! When the PSA "celebrate responsibly" has a whole different meaning. On a day when most are at services, traveling, or around large family dinners. Easter 2020 will have a much different chapter in the history books. Sacrifices today will pay off for tomorrow. Social distancing will flatten the curve. We will not over load our health care system. People will look back and say "see it wasn't that bad". Stay the course and continue to do your part. We are all now part of #clarkerespond

Stay safe
Stay healthy

And wash your hands!

Happy Easter

Just curious...when you post alerts or updates, it always seems to say “file not found” in the box. Are you working to correct this?
We’re looking into these, can’t miss and no loss of recovery time, to “Reload” another try.
We love you!! You were so awesome caring for our stranded group. Thank you!!
For those in the effected area. If you are traveling to Creston here is a resource.
Weather conditions this weekend? No wind and dry? Asking for a friend with a bic.
