Local and not so Local. Last Call for Beef from Old Crow Ranch for the 2011 Season: The last slaughter dates are in December so if you are interested in purchasing freezer beef for the winter please call Steve @ 207-837-8625. Since the holidays are upon us. We also have some frozen turkey’s leftover from the Fryeburg Fair. They were purchased from a farm in Pennsylvania for the fair and we did not use them all. They are regular Turkeys but much better than a Butter Ball. They are between 25 and 27 #’s and we are only asking $40.00 a piece. If interested please call Steve at the number above and we can deliver right to the school. Thank you, Steve and the gang at Old Crow Ranch. (11/08)
Hello, my name is Maram Gross, I'm 19 years old and I'm from Germany. I went there to a Waldorf School in Wendelstein which is near Nuremberg and I passed my exames in march. I'm now in the near of San Francisco as an Au Pair but I have some problems with my family, we kind of have completely different attitudes and because of that it's difficult to live with them... A rematch is no problem, so I thought it would be better to be an Au Pair of an Waldorf-family. I just wanted to ask, if you know in any way if there is demand of an Au Pair from the parents of your school. I am also allowed to care for children under the age of 2 - it would be really nice to hear something from you
