Condolences – Fall 2016

September 1, 2016

MOFGA mourns the loss of a great friend and longtime volunteer, Ken Hirsch. His big smile and love of helping in the Country Store were always very much appreciated. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family. We'll miss him very much.

MOFGA Volunteer Chuck Lakin

September 2016 – When MOFGA wants some fine woodworking done, Chuck Lakin is likely to be asked. Lakin supports MOFGA's mission but admits to being a poor gardener. "I'm not good with things that need daily attention," he says, adding, "It's no fun to do something you are not good at." So he does woodworking.
