OK, the 4th of July is behind us.  What’s next?  Labor Day, you say?  Not so fast!  Let’s not overlook July 7th, National Strawberry Sundae Day!  Who wouldn’t want to celebrate that?  I spent many summers when I was a kid picking strawberries with Mom.  It was quite a production. She would have our containers […]

Our Founding Farmers

by Jackie on July 4, 2014

When the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776, more than 90 percent of the workforce in the soon-to-be United States were farmers. Today, less than 2 percent of the population farms. While most people, myself included, consider ourselves to be pretty lucky to have the ability to go to a grocery and […]


Grilling for Everyone

by Michelle on May 28, 2014

May is National Bar B Que month!  Indy let’s celebrate! One of my favorite things is to BBQ or Bar B Que…either way cooking on a grill is easy and rewarding.  I am not going to begin to tell anyone how to grill.  Grilling is something that you begin with and then evolve.  But I […]


Favorite Mother’s Day Recipe

by Leilani Galbreath on May 9, 2014

There’s nothing that can transport me through time like the aroma of my favorite food, especially mama’s cookin’.  It seems one sniff can immediately bring to mind a moment in time that lives in the upper attic of our minds and is quickly brought forth when we smell a certain aroma. I wonder if any […]


Thank You, Teachers!

by Mary on May 7, 2014

Where in the world would we be without our teachers?  I just can’t imagine where I would be without the guidance and support from teachers throughout my life.  There may have been favorites, but every single one of my teachers had some kind of influence on choices I would eventually make on my own.  It […]


Who Keeps Your Office Running?

by Mary on April 23, 2014

“Accomplishing the impossible means only that the boss will add it to your regular duties” – Doug Larson Even though we all wear several different hats as a routine part of our jobs, I believe the hat rack for our administrative professionals is bigger than the rest of ours.  Our offices have been blessed to have […]

Earth Day – How do you celebrate?

by Mary on April 21, 2014

Set your “way-back” machines to April 22, 1970, and you might find yourself in the middle of a protest against the Vietnam War or driving a big, heavy car that only uses leaded gasoline.  Smog may surround you if you’re in a big city.  Or you could find yourself as one of the 20 million […]


Tomorrow is the First Day of Spring!

by Danielle Sovinski on March 19, 2014

Here are a few of my favorite things about spring! Riding bikes. As a kid, I used to ride my bike around my neighborhood, and occasionally I would ride over to a friend’s house. But I never realized how much cycling was actually a sport until I met my now husband in college. We both […]

What Do Our Presidents Think About Farmers?

by Jackie on February 17, 2014

Today is Presidents’ Day–a time when most people think of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln (both of those famous presidents were born in February and Presidents’ Day falls between their birthdays, although officially the day only celebrates Washington). Washington was regarded in his time as a true civil servant who was always a citizen first […]
