I found a great way to pass the hottest hours of the weekend -- looking through my box full of "Try the someday" recipes for those with blueberries as the starring ingredient. Not because I have a dozen blueberry bushes in my backyard -- I wish! But next week I'll be picking up a 10 lb. box (14 pints) of blueberries from the annual Pottsville Kiwanis Fresh Blueberry Sale. There's still time for you (or you and a couple of friends) to order your blueberries. According to the Kiwanis the blueberries will be delivered "from the grower within 24 hours of picking" on Wednesday, July 5 at Boyer's parking lot in Pottsville. Your blueberry purchase will help support scholarships and local charities for are youth supported by the Kiwanis. the cost for 10 lbs. is $31. You must order by Friday, June 30 by contacting one of the following Kiwanis: Henry at 570-985-7262, Kelly at 570-617-1125 or Susan at 570-691-5576.
While you're waiting for your blueberries why not learn more about the history of our area.
