Fox: Market open until November

Posted: September 23, 2013 - 4:30pm

Step into my den, pull up a comfy chair and a cup of tea and let’s chat.

Yummy fruit muffins will be served this week for breakfast at the Farmers’ & Crafters’ Market. Open every Saturday in the Wooster City Park through Nov. 2, it’s a great time to pick up fresh veggies, meet and greet your neighbors and support local growers.

Kim Austin, EAST program facilitator, said the Greenbrier High School EAST program is hosting a Health Fair for our students, faculty, and the community October 15th in the Greenbrier High School commons area. They will also host their EAST Night Out — a parent and community open house at the same time.This is a wonderful opportunity for you to discover how EAST (Environmental and Spatial Technology) can and has benefited our community and school. In past years, EAST students have completed many projects to aid community and business leaders in the Greenbrier area. They are also in the planning stages for the honoring of our Veterans in November. Get out and support these students who do so much for Faulkner County residents. Contact austink@greenbrierschools.org for more information.

Congratulations to Jeremy Riddle on winning a seat on our Greenbrier School Board.

Our GHS students had a message each day last week about texting and driving in observance of "Texting-It Can Wait Safe Drive Week.” How many times have you seen adults doing that? We could all take a page from that lesson.

GHS will host a College Fair September 26, Thursday from 9 to 11a.m. for all seniors and juniors. 40 colleges and agencies will be there. Parents are encouraged to attend with their child. University of Central Arkansas (UCA) will be there today during both lunches.

The Greenbrier Destination Imagination Creative Problem Solving Program is now accepting applications from students and Parent Volunteers until Monday, September 30. Destination Imagination is devoted to teaching three essential skills: creativity, teamwork and problem solving. If you love kids and have never seen the brilliant creativity that DI instills in students, then you are missing something wonderful. Go to www.idodi.org for more information. Contact Robin Clark, Greenbrier GT Coordinator at 501.679.3334 or email her at clarkr@greenbrierschools.org.

Hats off to our three fine Agriculture teachers, Rodney Wiedower, Jason Davis, and Casey Epler. Such dedication in teachers is truly admirable for all they did during County Fair week in working with our students and their animals. Go to spotted.thecabin.net to see photos of all the hard work with lambs, swine, cattle, goats, and rabbits that our Greenbrier students did.

‘Til next time, talk with you soon……….bj
