Heifer Excursion to Rutland

Categories: News

Join us in visiting the Heifer International Farm in Rutland, MA, this Saturday, December 13th. We will be leaving St. Michael’s at 9:30 a.m. and should be back around 3:30 p.m. Please email Jane Lundquist at jmlundquist@gmail.com if you are interested, so we can figure out the transportation. From Heifer’s website: “What do you buy the person who has everything? How about a goat, a llama or a water buffalo? At Heifer International’s Living Gift Market, learn how sponsoring animals like these can provide food and income for hungry families. You get a handsome card to give and a hungry family gets hope. Take pictures with the animals and purchase gifts from around the world in our fair-trade Shop@Heifer. Enjoy hot cocoa and cider, make gingerbread animal cookies and warm yourself by a bonfire. Admission: Canned goods which will be donated to a local food bank.”
