March has arrived and BRGNS is ready! Shelves in the food shelf stay stocked as food comes in and food goes out! We are very fortunate to receive donations, each and every one of which we are most grateful for! Please share with neighbors and friends, who may be struggling, to give us call at 802-228-3663 from Monday-Friday, 10 AM – 3 PM. It’s an easy process, information is collected over the phone, with food pickup at a mutually convenient time.
Our thrift store shelves are showing signs of spring, St. Patrick’s Day items are going fast and we’ve even tucked in a little Easter. As we move through the month a shift will begin to take place toward spring clothing and recreation equipment. Keep an eye out! And, don't forget our furniture store at 105 Main Street, Ludlow. Open Fridays and Saturdays from 10 AM - 4 PM there is always a bargain you can't pass up! And, we update folks on our Facebook page. Check it out!
Heads up! Our next Community Meal takes place on Thursday, April 6th at the Ludlow Community Center (next door to our Thrift Store/Food Shelf). Serving at noon, this meal really draws a crowd! And, ever popular Bingo follows the meal.
An important announcement: We are sponsoring and have begun a new support group entitled: Black River Memory Café. Designed for caregivers and their loved ones, it offers a safe and comfortable space for socialization, calming music, games and appropriate activities for folks with dementia. The event takes place at the Community Center Meeting Room, 37 Main Street, Ludlow beginning on Thursday, April 6th from 11 AM – 1 PM. and will continue monthly on the first Thursday. It’s free and lunch is provided. Contact Joan at 802-228-4145 for more information.
