We’ve had a lot of inquiries. Yarn School is definitely still on as usual this spring, but with all the extra work of the tornado recovery efforts, I won’t have ample time to dedicate to Cheese School, so we’re postponing that until this fall. I will definitely email everyone on the cheese list as soon as we nail down the dates.
For all who have been asking, at this point, we’re not sure if the storm system that spawned the tornado that destroyed half of Harveyville was large enough overall to qualify for FEMA aid. But we’ve had help from many generous groups and we keep hearing of new programs and grants on our behalf every few days.
If you want to donate:
Please donate through the United Way of Flint Hills –specify HARVEYVILLE TORNADO RELIEF in the “Focus Area” to guarantee the funds will come directly to Harveyville.
