Be on the lookout next week for the Grand Opening of the No Limits Hot Dog Cart!  We will be opening Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 AM to 1:30 PM and will be located at 24546 Coastal Boulevard in Tasley!  Come on by and grab a hot dog and a cold soda!

The cart, which will provide supervised PT employment to survivors of brain injury, was generously funded by the Eastern Shore of Virginia Community Foundation!!

There is a new community-wide scavenger hunt in our area called “ESVA Rocks”.  The idea is you decorate a rock, hide it somewhere easily accessible and available to the public, and then wait to see if anyone finds your rock using the Social Media Group dedicated to the challenge.

DSCF1293

We really enjoyed this activity and are very excited to place them out in the community when we go on our next Walking Trail Assessment!  Brandon says “Good luck finding my rock it is extra special and camouflaged!”

We think there has been activity in our bee house! Are you doing your part to help Native Pollinators on the Eastern Shore?! We grow native flowers and provide bee, bird, and butterfly houses on our property to attract native pollinators! Thank you to the Eastern Shore Soil & Water Conservation District for awarding us grant funding to help establish and upkeep the No Limits Pollinator Garden!

Bundick Well & Pump came out to mark our drain fields and taught Zel how to use the “dowsing rods”.  So cool!

DSCF1277

We were told that not every one is able to use these rods to find a drain field. They say that Zel had the magic touch!  Good work Zel.
