The Higgins Beach Association recently held a 'welcome back' supper for its members, a time to catch up on what's been happening here and away. The annual event included a silent auction for which members of the neighborhood association collected great prizes from local artists and businesses. With good-natured and spirited bidding, members of the HBA raised a very generous donation for Project GRACE. While much of the gift is designated for fuel assistance, a portion of the gift will be used to help the Community Garden grow. Thank you, neighbors!
Thinning the Lettuces
We've had good luck with the weather to get our first seeds to sprout - and soon we'll be thinning the lettuces and kale. Look along the fence, the first beans are coming up, too.
