Mary Ann is being recognized for her dedication to the Good Shepherd Center.
In February of 2015 The Good Shepherd Center’s roof began to leak because of bricks falling onto it. In Sept. 2015 the former_Moss Building was declared unsafe.
This resulted in the closing of Main Street and The Good Shepherd Center had to evacuate their building. Mary Ann never lost hope and quickly got things relocated;
Clinic – Zions Church, The meal program – Knights of Columbus, and the clothing store at 5 Clinton Street. Now they have a new home at 10 N. Water St with the retail shop is already in operation. The meal program and was recently moved to the new building. The next project will be moving the clinic over.
Mary Ann knew the community needed these
services in the area and now they are becoming a reality.
shoe drive 2017 Poster for the shoe drive. Our shoe drive is off to a great start but we need help to reach our goal of 7,500 pair of new or slightly used shoes, slippers, boots from infant to adults. It nets about .30 per pound and we are hoping to get enough to send our youngest members to Junior camp again this summer. We have boxes and barrels located at many locations around Mercer County. The shoes are sent to third world countries where they are greatly needed. Please help if you are able!

We had our Open House on April 22, 2016. There were approximately 31 people in attendance including Mike and Janet Pratt. We had a lot of good food including ham, salads, potatoes, and of course, desserts. Our program was on edible plants using the leaves or roots. We also learned about plants that can harm us.

The Log Cabin Unity Grange #2110 got off to a good start. We hosted an Easter egg hunt on March 26th for ages 1 through 12. We had about 100 children show up and, I believe around 1,000 eggs hidden all over the park. We had 6 age groups, each with there own search area. The 1-2 year old searched for their eggs in a patch of straw at 1:00 followed by the other age groups in increments of about 15 minutes. Some of the eggs had money, some candy, and some were special eggs with a slip telling them to pick out a prize. The parents were very impressed and many came over and thanked us. We even received a donation toward next year’s egg hunt.
