Listen to Gerry Laverty
Online NOW!
Playing from Noon-2:00:  Local singer/song writer Gerry Laverty. Influenced by The Great Folk Scare of the '60's, Gerry received early encouragement by way of a tape of songs sent to fabled Columbia Records producer, John Hammond, Sr. Styled with acoustic guitar, harmonica and occasional mandolin, his songs reflect the travails of the lone wanderer, spiritual images and rail against social injustice.

ChiknEGG is holding a toy drive at our Holiday Farm Market on Sat., Dec. 7th, 2013 in support of Mason's Toy Box
Bring a new, unwrapped gift!
Our featured non-profit once again this year is Mason's Toy Box. Mason's Toy Box started as a small idea to honor Mason Thomas who lost his 5 year battle with Neuroblastoma June 20, 2011. On the six month "angelversary" of Mason's passing they deliver toys to children in the hospital (and the Ronald McDonald House this year) in his honor. They also try to fill a "wish list" of the children there on the day of their visit. This is done with any monetary donations they receive.  Please BRING A NEW, UNWRAPPED GIFT for our toy drive.  Please be generous so these sweet children can have a happy moment or two during the holiday season!

Thank you for your generosity! We sincerely hope that each and every one of you has a wonderful holiday season.  Thank you for your on-going support throughout the years!
