Just a reminder that the Bishop’s Storehouse and Dry Packing area is open every Tuesday from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.

If persons want to dry pack, they need to contact Brother Lewis at 740-654-6564 and make an appointment to make sure that he is not overbooked and that he will have whatever is needed for dry packing.

March Trip to the Cannery

We are planning a trip to the Indy Cannery for March 27, 2010 (Saturday). If you are interested in attending, please contact me as soon as possible!

We are not able to bring our own food. (That's why I do the bulk canning at my house, which will happen on May 22.)

I'll need a list of what people want to order by Wednesday, the 24st. The order form is found here.

People can order any number of items canned or pouched (the first 2 columns). Or- you can order bulk bags (the third column). Or- you can order the prepackaged items (on the bottom left.)

You don't need to order individual cans, pouches, or oxygen absorbers. If you order 6 cans, you get 2 free lids and a box. If you order 5 pouches, you get a free box.

If you have questions, please ask!

Here is a great video that gives you an idea of what to expect at the Cannery.
