Wishbone hopes that all his human friends had a wonderful Easter! He has already eaten all his egg shaped puppy bones and is now on the hunt for the other dog's baskets.
In his quest to find a delicious puppy bone, Wishbone might find other "non-pet friendly" Easter snacks too. That is why he would like to remind EVERYONE that chocolate and the grass used in Easter Baskets can be deadly. Special holidays bring about special treats, many of which should remain out of a dog or cat's paws. We can't forget about the beautiful Easter plants too. Make sure they are kept out of reach. In our eyes, it may not smell like food, but may be something fun to play with.

When you make the Tool Thrift Shop your choice, you will continue the efforts of supporting the community in so many ways.
This retail store was founded by the Fairport Baptist Homes, five years ago, with the mission to give back to the community. With the support of many volunteers, proceeds made by the thrift store are donated to the Senior Options for Independence (SOFI). SOFI provides unwavering support to its seniors, age 60 and above, who wish to still live at home. For many seniors, having the ability to stay home and be connected to professionally trained care coordinators gives them the security and confidence to thrive. SOFI also offers transportation services for the everyday needs for seniors, as well as, the necessary medical appointments.
What a wonderful place the Tool Thrift Shop is, for not only the tool enthusiast, but the community also. You will find tools at very affordable prices while making a contribution to seniors. The Tool Thrift Shop is a volunteer-run, retail shop. For many seniors, it also gives them a sense of pride by volunteering in the Tool Thrift Shop so they too, continue the efforts to support the community.

Did you make a promise with yourself to eat healthier? Who hasn't! Here's a healthy recipe to help you keep your promise...and the best part is it is delicious!
No-Stick Cooking Spray
2 cups frozen broccoli florets
3/4 cup shredded reduced fat Cheddar cheese
1 carton (16 oz each) Egg Beaters® Original
Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously spray 12 regular muffin cups with cooking spray; set aside.
Microwave broccoli with 1 tablespoon water for 2 minutes, drain, cut into small pieces.
Spoon broccoli evenly into muffin cups; add Cheddar cheese.
Pour Egg Beaters evenly over filled cups.
Bake approximately 20 minutes or until puffed and toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Let the 'egg muffins' sit a couple minutes and then run a table knife around the edges to loosen.
Use your favorite vegetables, use whatever is in season, or if you want to add bacon, sausage or ham you certainly can. You can use whisked eggs if you prefer. They are a delicious breakfast treat no matter what you add, just remember the 'healthy' factor may decrease as you toss in ingredients! You can even make them the night before, store in the fridge and heat in the microwave on those rushed mornings.
