and joins with
AmeriCorps Cape Cod’s 

MLK Day of Service

“Hunger for Change”

Monday, January, 18th, 2010

The Town of Harwich will be celebrating Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day with festivities planned by the Harwich No Place for Hate Committee in collaboration with Barnstable County AmeriCorps Cape Cod, who will be sponsoring a food drive at supermarkets throughout Barnstable County.  The day will begin with a celebration in the main foyer of Harwich Town Hall at 11am, which will include a flag ceremony with a color guard, music and readings from the works of Dr. King.
Following this hour long ceremony, those who wish are invited to offer some time of service between noon and 4 pm at Shaws Supermarket on Sisson Rd. or at Stop and Shop in East Harwich, assisting the Barnstable County AmeriCorps with the “Hunger For Change” Food Drive campaign.  Volunteers will be needed to greet shoppers and to staff a table at each store, assisting customers to select healthier donated foods.
To conclude the day, volunteers and members of the community will join together for a soup dinner at the Dennis Church of the Nazarene. The dinner will be cooked by a handful of volunteers and orchestrated by two volunteer chefs from the Ring Brothers Marketplace in South Dennis. The service portion of the day will last from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., and the community dinner will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. 
Barnstable County AmeriCorps Cape Cod is hosting its 10th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service (MLK Day) by bringing members of the community together to address the pressing issue of hunger on Cape Cod. This year’s project was designed to help re-stock the shelves of pantries struggling to serve clients, while also helping meet their goal of collecting healthier donated goods,” says Rebecca Wolfson, program specialist at AmeriCorps Cape Cod.  AmeriCorps Cape Cod has partnered with the Cape Cod Hunger Network, the Barnstable County Department of Human Services, and Harwich No Place for Hate, and a number of other organizations to plan the event.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real income.
It's all about how to select a proper companion who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
