First some announcements,
First Lady Michelle Obama came to the Penacook Community Center to show her support for the PCC joining the Let's Move initiative. Included in this presentation was her thanking The Penacook Historical Society for our partnership with them, that allowed the use of garden space to benefit the children from the Community Center during the summer. We appreciate the recognition but it's all about the children and exposing them to gardening, an activity that teaches them about plants and gets them outside.
The Calendars for 2012 are done - the price is $9.95 ea. online and $10.00 at the Gift Shop.
