If all campaigning is, is meeting and speaking to folks in Bollinger, Perry, Madison county … this summer is going to be fun!
My first stop of the morning, although I was running a bit late, was to my local co-op to pick up my box of produce. I love these gals for what they do!
I believe it is important to support our local co-ops as well as our local Farmers Market, as it is important to support our local farmers and to buy local. I believe in this so much that a few years ago I created a Facebook page so that we can easily find our local farmers markets and I visit as many local farmers market in my area as possible, and post their information so that others are aware of their fare.
Next I visited the Bollinger County Farmers Market. Although we were running late, we caught Tiffene and Virgil Lindley of the Lazy L Ranch.
Wow what a crew they had on hand!
I have nothing but admiration for this young couple, as they seem to understand the peril our nation is in today. I really enjoyed our conversation and, now that I know where the Bollinger Farmers Market is, will make sure it is on my list for my Saturday visits!
Next I ran into Erin Schloss of the Girl Scouts of Missouri Heartland. Next time I run into Erin, I will make sure to video tape the discussion, as it was great! You know, I was a Brownie and then a Girl Scout and finally a Marine. Are the two related? I am not sure, but one of the gals I was in boot camp with, Angela Salinas, is now the CEO of the Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas.
I believe it is groups like the Girl Scouts that help children develop form social footing. I believe the Girl Scouts to be a great cause and ALWAYS will help a scout out on their cookie orders!
