Community Spotlight: 23rd Early Risers Program

Posted: Updated:

In our May 8th Community Spotlight, Tori Bender interviewed Marla Wilckens from the Early Risers Committee and 1st Presbyterian Church, to hear about their 23rd Early Risers Program.

This year they are doing a project called "Growing Gardens From Garbage." Their goal is to provide sustainable food sources and annually deliver tons of produce to the 436 Head Start Preschoolers and their families.

If you would like to join, they meet at 6:30 AM, on the first four Thursdays of May, at 1st Presbyterian Church. The address is 1315 Central Ave. Those who attend, will join an ecumenical gathering of local women who come to worship, listen to speakers, enjoy music, and work towards their goal for the year. Donations are taken each time they meet. It's $5 a session and will include a light breakfast.

Fore more information, please call 453-1411.
