HART holds final meeting until spring on Oct. 31


November 13, 2019

The Hanna Agricultural Resource Team (HART) met at 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 31 at the Hanna Market to wind down their meeting schedule before next spring.

The meetings are regularly held on the last Tuesday of the month, but had to be changed to Thursday.

Linda Goodrich, secretary of HART, said she had forgotten it was Halloween when she had rescheduled, so the attendees agreed to make the meeting short.

The main order of business was to go over the prizes that would be displayed for the raffle they would have at the Winter Carnival, will be held at the Hanna Recreation Center.

The attendees also discussed if they wanted to be in the parade for the Winter Carnival. The early cold snap made the members worry that having a float could cause a hardship to those manning it.

“Most of us are older and the cold can be too hard on us,” Goodrich said. “It has been minus 21 already and, combined with the wind, it really could be brutal. Everyone is saying it could be a rough winter, so better be safe than sorry.”

Rose Dabbs, past chairman of HART, said there would also be a silent auction at their table at the carnival. She said a quilt and large Christmas tree would be offered.

Goodrich said HART was still researching the flowers to be used for the Tea Garden that the organization has offered to recreate for the Hanna Basin Museum for next spring.

The garden will be outside the Miner Cottage and is one of the buildings that comprises the museum.

Goodrich said the community garden was officially shut down for the winter.

“We had no choice given how bad the weather has been this October,” Goodrich said. “So this is the last meeting until spring.”

The next meeting Goodrich estimated to be around the end of April.
