Between this last Friday and today, residents, staff/sisters, and volunteers husked, “de-haired,” and bagged about 1900 ears of sweet corn.
We are very grateful, first of all, to the Wald family for growing and harvesting all this corn for us! It has been an annual tradition for many years; we appreciate their kindness.
We also want to thank all of the great volunteers who came in to help us! Your hard work and capable hands were a huge asset in “getting the job done.”
Thank you, too, to our staff and residents who were so helpful.
Our residents will be able, thanks to all of you, to enjoy delicious, locally grown sweet corn all year through.
PS: Did you know that, according to the Mayo Clinic’s website, corn provides your body with needed fiber, B vitamins, zinc, magnesium, copper, iron and manganese? It also contains antioxidants and other things that help you to have healthy eyes. However, diabetics need to keep in mind its high carbohydrate content.
