Spring is in the Air!

One Bistro's gardeners, Linda Sutton and Kathy Lewis, are volunteering their time to plant the flower boxes in front of the bistro. They also weeded the flower beds in front of One Bistro, Coffee Hub and TI. It is so wonderful to see God's beautiful creation in bloom as spring arrives and our state slowly begins to 'bloom' again during the pandemic.

Don't forget about our T-Shirts and Gift Cards!
