We made the goal! $460 from the website and another $155 in cash donations. Thank you all so much for helping the Red Cross. There's now 30 other runners on the team, and if we all raise a similar amount, that's $18000!! That's some real money we're talking about, and it all came in $10 and $20 donations from you guys. Now I just gotta go out and run this thing. Thank you all again.

I'm almost there!! I'm one of 24 people running Grandma's for the American Red Cross. I just need $100 to hit my goal of $500. A huge thank you to all you who have donated so far. 10 people each giving only $10 is all I need to hit my goal!
The Red Cross provides all sorts of great services for those in need - from CPR and First Aid certification classes to disaster relief from wildfires and hurricanes. It's a worthy cause and a great organization.
I'd love to hit my goal my the end of tonight. Please help and go to this page to donate: https://www.crowdrise.com/ARC2015GrandmasMarathon/fundraiser/robwells. Thank you all so much,

Dear Cook County Residents,
I'm campaigning as part of the American Red Cross' marathon team for Grandma's Marathon in June. I'm trying to raise $500 as my committment to the team. A $10 donation is all that I'm asking, and it goes a long way to help me reach my goal. If you can help please go to this page to donate http://www.crowdrise.com/ARC2015GrandmasMarathon/fundraiser/robwells You can even choose how your donation will be used by the Red Cross. It's a great charity and a great event. All help is very much appreciated. Thanks!

Once again the NWFP and Extension office are taking a group onion plant order for Dixondale Onions. A group order makes onion plants more affordable for all of us while supporting local food production. If you want to order, here are the varieties:
1. Copra - yellow, storage onion
2. Rec Zeppelin - red, storage onion
3. Candy - yellow intermediate onion, not long storage

We order them in bunches - 50 -60 plants in a bunch. If you only want 10 or 1/2 a bunch, I will pair you up with someone else.
Deadline for orders is Tuesday, March 10.
Delivery is usually the first week of May with pick up at the Extension office. Cost will vary depending upon how large the onion order is. The more we order, the cheaper the cost. The last couple of years cost has been between $4 and $8 per bunch.
To order: Call 218-387-3015.
If you call or email me, make sure you receive a response back so you know I have received your order.
