The New Office

This is the office "The Crop" built.
Well, "The Crop", and the Mother's Day Walk, and a lot of really hard work!
Julie and Alane have plenty of space to work in this place, and let me tell you, it's in a great location! Right on East Superior Street in Duluth, across the street from Pizza Luce. What could be better than that? There's plenty of storage room for any incoming crop donations, *wink*wink*...but you'll have to wait a while before we give any sneak peeks!

Now for the story of Pineapple, the little pink bear in our previous post.
Alane says Pineapple came from one of their group members who is from the south. She says pineapples traditionally mean "welcome", so Pineapple was the name given to the bear. Whenever the YSC holds a group meeting, Pineapple is passed around, and whoever has the bear has the floor.

We'll have more information on the Crop in the coming days! Stay tuned!

Take a Look At This

Many of you have already seen and heard this news, but for those of you have not, our friend and fellow crop organizer Julie Bates (pictured left in our header photo) was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months ago. This is her second battle with "b-c" so, unfortunately, Julie knows the drill.

Last month, when Julie's first round of chemo started causing her hair to fall out, she made a few phone calls and we headed to her house for a head shaving party. Julie allowed me to take pictures, and she put together this slideshow. Take a look, and please, leave some encouraging words for Julie in her "album comments" section at the bottom of the slideshow! I know she'd appreciate them!

Julie's chemo treatments should be wrapped up by Christmas time, in the meantime, she is working with the rest of us on putting together one heckuva crop!

Coming up in a future post...I'll tell you more about this photo with Julie & Alane, and the little pink bear named Pineapple! Stay tuned!

Alane's Surprise

So, many of you know Alane rode in this years' Young Survival Coalition Tour De Pink, a 226 mile bike ride from Hershey, PA, to Manhattan. But how many of you saw her on the National News this morning?

Get Ready for the "Non-Stop Survivor Crop"!

Mark your calendars everyone! We have a date for our next event!

9:00am - 12:00am (yes, that's 15 hours of scrapping time!)
Marshall School, Duluth, MN

We'll be at Marshall School again, because we just love the natural light, the view, and the amount of room we have to spread out!

Alane, Julie and Kim are getting all the details worked out...but we thought you'd at least like to know we're ready to get our crop on! ;D

We'll post registration information as soon as we can! Thanks for checking in with the blog!
