"Throughout this pandemic I was inspired by all of you who gave your time and talents to bring the Farmers Market to our community (and beyond) in a time where social isolation and the need for human contact was taking its toll on most of us. Each week I was thankful to have somewhere local to go to get healthy and yummy foods, safely see neighbors and friends, and just simply get out of my house! I want to thank you all for what you did for me."
"We settled on our first home on Christmas Eve and ended up spending Christmas night on an air mattress with our baby and dog. When we pulled onto Mantua Ave., we saw the luminaries lighting our way. My husband and I both welled up because of how perfect and surreal that welcome was. We will never forget that moment ... and you did that! I want to be part of something like that. Something that gives people that special feeling and does good while lifting one another up!"

The History of our Collect
written by Mary Stuart, 1904
Mary Stewart wrote the Collect in 1904 as a member of the Fortnightly Club, the forerunner of the Longmont Colorado BPW club. The Collect was written as a prayer to instill a sense of unity among women working together with wide interests and important goals.
Mary Stewart worked for women's suffrage nationally and attended the meeting in St. Louis, where the National Federation was launched. She was elected its first corresponding secretary and thereafter took an active part in the growth of the young organization by service as chairman or member of a number of national committees.
In her words we can learn to strive to always be better
"Keep us, O God, from pettiness;
let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
Let us be done with fault-finding and
leave off self-seeking.
May we put away all pretense and meet each
other face to face -- without self-pity
and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgment and
Let us take time for all things;
make us to grow calm, serene, gentle.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses,
straightforward and unafraid.
Grant that we may realize it is the little
things that create differences,
that in the big things of life we are at one.
And may we strive to touch and to know the great,
common human heart of us all, and
O Lord God, let us forget not to be kind!"
