*****Student council members at the high school go to the Johnson City Christian Food Pantry every month to help carry out bags and boxes of food to recipients. But would they remember their commitment January 2nd? It was during the winter break, when routines are disrupted, and it was freezing (literally) in the unheated county barn. But they remembered! Right on time, in the door they came, bundled up and ready to work. Good for them.

*****Tip for the week: Dryer sheet cuts your bathroom cleaning time in half - makes mirrors & bath fixtures sparkle and cuts right through soap scum on bathtub. Use to get sticky dust right off of furniture, blinds and baseboards. Cleans up cook tops and greasy cupboards quickly. Soak paintbrushes in warm water with a dryer sheet and watch the paint come right off. Clean dead, icky bugs from the car. Wipe pet hair off of clothes and furniture. Run over thread before sewing to keep tangles away.
