Community Plant Sale
Thank you to Tori Amos & Shelby Amos (and their sweet kids) for all the work they put into this LPIF Fundraiser. We were gifted a check in the amount of $450 from the Amos Family to put in our General Fund for future events/projects in the community. Shelby’s dream is have a community garden in Linden. We support him and his family 100%. Again, thank you for making this Plant Sale happen and believing in the mission of LPIF.
Tie-Dye Event in Downtown Linden
Waiting on more rubber bands to come in. Who is up for rubber banding t-shirts for our July Tie-Dye event in downtown Linden? I know it seems early, but trust me… July 17 will be here in the blink of an eye.
If 10 people could band 15 assorted size shirts, we would be good to go. Reach out below and tell me if you can help. I will get back to you by PM on the details of what is needed. I would like to see this done by June 20.
Also going to need help with the event. Both with the tie-dye shirts and the rock painting. I will have sign up sheet put up the first week on June.
