We made some changes to our indoor garden lights and our Christmas Cactus is blooming. Pretty colors in the house!

Working on creating Comfort Dolls in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Accomack. We think this is a really wonderful project and love to help out even though it is hard work!

Our Executive Director, Rachel, gave an awesome lesson on self advocacy this week!

Starting our spring/summer vegetables inside from seed. We can’t wait to see the veggies start growing!

Our long-time friend Maureen donated an assortment of household items to No Limits and within those items was a decorative rooster. We took the rooster out to the No Limits hens to see how they would react!

DSCF5272

…They were not amused by the rooster and wanted nothing to do with “him”.

DSCF5273

They wouldn’t even go near him for corn treats (which they love.)  It was a funny experience though!  🙂

David, Brandon, and Kyle working on prototypes for a new project we are working on – building air plant terrariums! Stay tuned to our blog and Facebook page for updates on when we will start selling these decorative house plants!

We are sorry to announce that we were so busy this year while visiting the Virginia General Assembly that we forgot to take a picture of our hard work in action!  Here we see Brandon posing for a picture with an informational card/treat sample packet that was delivered to the desk of every Delegate and Senator in Virginia!

CL brought in a few bags of skittles so that we could all try the “Skittles Taste Test”.  The test works as follows: you are given a list of the flavors that may be given to you and then you have to close your eyes and try to guess the correct flavor based on taste alone!  It is not as easy to guess as you might think.  Here you can see our Executive Director, Rachel, joining in on the fun.  🙂

What flavor is it Rachel?!  Hehehe, we gave her a sour one with no warning!  Sorry!  She did guess the flavor correctly though.

Maryann, Andre, and David hand-making cat treats that will be delivered to the Delegates and Senators at the Virginia General Assembly when we travel to Richmond next week for Brain Injury Awareness Day.  A special shout-out to our buddy Andre who came to help out on his birthday!!!  Thanks again Andre, and happy birthday!

DSCF5185

Look at all these treats!  We are excited to offer the cat treat samples along with our informational rack cards to the legislators in Richmond in order to show them an example of the productive work that we do here at No Limits.  Last year we took dog biscuits and we think it was a huge success!

DSCF5188

We made over 4,200 hand-made cat treats to be delivered.  WOOP WOOP!  Great work team!

DSCF5187

Bag on my peeps, bag on!  Bag those cat treats for the legislators!

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our long-time friend and one of our favorite Star Transit bus drivers, Barry Kranich.  Barry was an avid supporter and dear friend of No Limits Eastern Shore.  He will be greatly missed and we hope that he may rest in peace.
