12th Annual Fallon Garden Tour

We love the Flower Tree!!  This is an amazing tour for an amazing cause (if I do say so myself)!!!

12th Annual Fallon Garden Tour 
Sunday, June 23

Have you ever wondered what you could do with our Fallon soil and weather conditions? Here is a great chance to see what others have created. This years gardens are all very distinct and different and have a strong focus on edible gardening. From new landscapes, to established yards, visit with the homeowners and get their thoughts on what worked ~ and more important  ~ what didn't and why. 
This years gardens are hosted by:

Terri and John Sweet/Sweet Farms
Ray and Bonnie Jones
Dave and Sylvia Lumos
Bill and Theresa Lawry
Linda Jacks

Tickets are only $5.00, (children under 12 ~ free) All proceeds from ticket sales go to the Fallon Youth ClubPurchase your tickets at The Flower Tree, and maps are available starting Friday, June 21st

The Fallon Youth Club would like to express our deepest heartfelt thanks to Wendy, Rose and all the other wonderful employees of Bank of America. They are an amazing group of people who routinely provide various items to directly support our members.
Over the last year they have provided Christmas stockings filled with thoughtful items and personal care packages for various ages.  These thought gifts are very appreciated!!!

Thanks to all of you at Bank of America

Our mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged
circumstances to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. 

After this article ran, I had many questions from different kids here at the Club.  Many were concerned or scared at the thought of The Fallon Youth Club closing. For many of our kids we ARE the consistent, concerned happy adults they wait to see everyday!

One little one in particular, Kayla,  
(the dark haired girl pictured here) asked me, "Miss Myndee, is the Club closing?" I told her not right now, but we have to start raising money to keep our doors open.
She said,"WHAT!  I will do anything for FYC!",  as she reached into her pocket and gave me $ .50. "I LOVE FYC!!! I will help!"
 This kind and thoughtless consideration of giving back to her Club overwhelmed me with emotion. I gave little Kayla a BIG hug and thanked her!  I love to see the mission in motion!

It's been years in the making...We finally did it!!! Fallon Youth Club, Ski D.U.C.K. and the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe collaborate to get kids on the hill! We were able to provide the opportunity for many youngsters in our community a chance to learn how to ski and/or snowboard for a minimum amount of money thanks to Ski D.U.C.K.!!! We all look forward to many more fun times up there!!!
Thanks again ski D.U.C.K.!!!
Without you so many wouldn't have the chance to experience these fantastic sports! 

Do you remember the simpler days of just being a kid? Playing with your friends, playing in the sprinklers, or maybe playing ...
