Special speaker at Democratic Club meeting

-A A +A

Did you ever hear about the practice called “pay it forward?” This is more or less how it works.

Look for an opportunity to help someone. Then suggest that the person pay you back by doing a good deed for someone else. That person can then do likewise.

This doesn’t necessarily have to involve money. There are other ways such as offering to extend a helping hand.

When someone has done something nice for you, pay it forward. It will leave you with a good feeling. Kindness to others can keep radiating outward.

Just think what a wonderful impact this could have on the world. It’s so much better to have a positive, rather than a negative, impact on others.

Democratic Club

The speaker at the next Democratic Club meeting Tuesday, June 17, at 6:30 p.m. in suites E and F of the ACC is Tim Cunha. Tim is 57 years of age, and a graduate of Rutgers University, and Georgetown University Law Center.

His record is outstanding.

He taught seminars at Rutgers on topics of legal and political philosophy, justice, and globalization. He also practiced dispute resolution as a family and commercial moderator.

He has extensive experience and managing ability in forming entrepreneurial and diverse fields. His business career has equipped him to understand and appreciate both the perils and potential of small business, and the constant struggle of “Main Street” competing with special interests on Wall Street.

Farmers Market

By 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 29, the Farmers Market area was packed with cars and lots of people milling about the stands. There were a few new vendors on hand.

Joe’s Oat Patties was one of them. Some of the organic dry meatless burger mixes in plastic bags are Fresh Garden, Corn & Black Bean, Curry Lentil, and about five other kinds. It is mixed with boiling water and makes six patties with no preservatives, costing $6.

These are homemade veggie burgers. They can be mixed with eggs, spaghetti sauce, etc.

A pound of hand picked blueberries sold for $3.50. They were delicious, tasting much sweeter than those supermarkets sell.

Since the cherry tomatoes were so tasty last week, I bought another box for $1.50. Ditto the very large cantaloupe for $2.

Hopefully, the hours will be extended. There are many future customers who would shop there if it were open afternoons as well as the morning.

Till next week – let’s live in the moment, letting the future take care of itself.
