Bring On the Sunshine & Local Foods!

01 May 2020 11:09 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Greetings,

We are excited to see Texas opening up. There are some restrictions that will be applied so be very patient with businesses and each other. We will begin to see things return to normal soon. 

This warm, sunny weather is giving us a reason to get outside and enjoy nature. It is good for you and helps to strengthen your immune system.

Vitamin D is often referred to as “the sunshine vitamin” because the sun is one of the best sources of this nutrient. Your skin hosts a type of cholesterol that functions as a precursor to vitamin D. When this compound is exposed to UV-B radiation from the sun, it becomes vitamin D.  

In other news, we will begin to visit our local restaurants and favorite getaways. We have attached some guidelines to help you. The individual and employer information is included. It is important to do your part. 

We are offering employers and job seekers an online job fair  through Workforce Solutions Rural Capitol Area. Sign up today. You may find the employee or career of your dreams.

As a rural community we are looking for ways to help you get access to the things you need locally. We are reaching out to the community to help create our own Shop Local - Farm to Table group where you can get locally sourced food products. In the past we had a Farmers Market which struggled, but it is time to bring back the Local Food Producers. Contact our office to get on the list. Send us your 

name, product, address, email, phone number. We are going to post this on our website and the ARCIT.com website. Rural Texas is the Real Texas. If we grow it, they will come!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
