Mr Reynolds adds: "This morning, the FFA and Ag Science class took 3 Flats of tomatoes down the Hardware Store . Ten 4 inch pots per flat of Early girl, Better Boy and Stupice.
Our total Plant count this year was 435. We will have Cherry, Early Girl, Better Boy, Roma,Stupice and Green Bell Peppers. We are early getting them out this year but I must also say It’s too early to plant them anyway.
The 4 inch pots are $2 dollars and a bit later we will have some 1 gallon size Early girl and Better Boy Those will go for $3. each."
Sales help to support THS horticulture efforts.

Chairman Bill Marshall opened the meeting and Roll Call was taken.
Minutes: Minutes were reviewed. Chris made a motion to accept the minutes as typed. Patty seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Leasehold Tax Update- Glenda asked Lynn Ford to update the committee regarding House Bill 1526. At the current time it appears that the bill will be approved. This would make non-profits that own buildings exempt from paying leasehold tax.
Thrift Store Update – Lynn reported that the building for the thrift store venture is not available as the Visiting Nurses have extended their lease indefinitely. A discussion took place regarding where to store what has been accumulated for the venture. Commissioner Stamper secured storage in the old Star Tavern building that is currently owned by the county. Lynn will coordinate with Doug Carey, Facilities manager, to be able to access the building for storage.
Lewis County Seniors 501(c)3 Reorganization - A discussion took place regarding the committee’s vote at the last meeting to approach the Lewis County Seniors regarding reorganization of their existing 501(c)3 fundraising board to a managing board. Glenda stated that she would develop a written proposal to submit to the LC Seniors at their next meeting on April 14th. It was decided by all that the proposal should include a statement of intent to assist the Lewis County Seniors with reorganization so that they would not assume that the Transition Team would make this proposal and then walk away without helping to establish a solid 501(c)3 management board.
Chris, Bill and Jim all said they would attend the meeting with Glenda to help with questions the LC Seniors may have regarding the proposal.
Sub Committee Development: Two sub-committees were formed to begin working on the reorganization plan for the Lewis County Seniors.
