Enjoying your glowing rectangle? They are a lot of fun, especially when zombies want to eat your brainz. Still, it’s for the best if you deal in the third dimension and see things with faces from time to time, so as you don’t get too weird over the winter when the rain hits:
Final Farmer’s Market with Good Shepherd Apples this Wednesday:
The Wallingford Farmer’s Market has its last session of the year this Wednesday from 3:30 to 7 PM (it restarts in the spring). Along with the market, try some free apples from the orchard.
Tara Macdonald, lead gardener at the Good Shepherd Center, writes:
The Good Shepherd Center grows 18 varieties of apples, carrying on the tradition started by the nuns when the center was a home for girls. Some of those varieties, both old fashion and new, will be available to taste this Wednesday September 30th from 10am-6pm. Apple samples will be offered at a table set up in the lawn off the northwest corner of the south parking lot. Come over and taste test the apples and vote for your favorite. Information will be available about the varieties, our experiments with organic pest control techniques, local support for home fruit growers, and volunteer opportunities to help support our urban fruit trees.
JSIS Playground Planning Next Monday
Darla Rhodes writes:
In a Sept. 3rd Wallyhood post, our Playground Steering Committee shared that we had received a matching grant to apply toward the improvement of the JSIS playground, a resource for our school and community. To fully earn this grant,
we need to match the amount in community donations of work hours and financial support.
We have now set up several ways for the community to support this project:
- Attend our next community meeting on Monday, October 5th at 6:30 p.m. in the JSIS cafeteria. We’ll discuss plans for the playground, our matching grant process, and funding plans; we want to hear your ideas and feedback!
- Donate funds directly to the project via Cash, Check or Paypal. Information for all are found on our site. Every dollar helps!
- Volunteer your time, labor, and expertise via our sign-up genius, and we’ll contact you about future work-parties and activities.
- Donate items/services to for our raffle/auction. Contact us at [email protected] for more information.
- Buy a ticket to for our October 17/18 dump run fundraiser. Thanks to Black & Picket for the truck donation.
Thank you for supporting this valuable school & neighborhood resource! And thank you to the many Wallingford vendors who have already contributed to our efforts, including Molly Moon’s, Sock Monster, Kate’s Pub, Ivars, Brooks, Trophy, Guild 45th, & more!

Jackie King writes:
The Lincoln Lynx Alumni Association (LLAA) will be holding its Annual Meeting on Saturday, October 17, 2015 at Lincoln High School in the Little Theatre at 1 pm. The LLAA will be electing a new president for a two year term. The high school will be open for tours following the meeting. This may be our last chance to see the existing building before the remodel of the high school. It’s an exciting time to become a member of the LLAA, as we look ahead to the re-opening of our alma mater in 2019. Go Lynx!
