I got it last night. Looking forward to reading it soon.

For those looking for the paperback version, Amazon hasn't yet merged both editions on the same page. If you type, the word "Tool & Die by John L. Daly, paperback" as your search, you'll find it.

Dear Friends,

After about 25 years of fiddling around with the manuscript, my first novel, Tool & Die, is now available in a Kindle format. You don't need to have a kindle device, Amazon provides the software so that you can read this format on a PC or MAC computer.

I know that a lot of people are without jobs right now, so to help out, I'm making the download free for three days, Sunday, April 26th through Tuesday, April 28th.

www.amazon.com/dp/B087N2SSGD/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Tool+%26+Die+by+John+L.+Daly&qid=158776...

At 213 pages, it should be a quick read. A paperback version should be available sometime next week. If you like it, please leave a review on Amazon.com. If you don't like it, please be tactful.

John

Audio Edutainment can help to reduce educational disparities. Everyone with a mobile device has the same ability to hear, and audio programs are easier to pick up without wifi. I'd like to know who else is doing this. This video is created by a teacher-naturalist John Benjamin - it's a good old-fashioned singalong! John will sing some of his original, kid-friendly songs about nature, and share the lyrics live so you can sing along at home too. Learn to identify local bird songs, hear the adventure of the amazing ballooning spiderlings, and more. We'll enjoy some spirit-lifting singin’, pickin’, grinnin’ & maybe even learnin’!

COLLEGE AND COMMUNITY CONNECTTO HELP DURING CRISIS

ALBION-“What goes around, comes around” as the Albion area positively connects to help the community access food.
Making this connection are Albion College, Albion community organizations and a Detroit-based relief group joining together to help feed those in need in the Albion-area.
During this global pandemic crisis many in the Albion area have needed to find food for their families. The Albion-Homer United Way launched an Emergency Relief Fund, with a matching $12,500 grant from the Albion Community Foundation, to help purchase necessary food for area residents through the South Michigan Food Bank, Sprout and commercial food sources. So far over $6,000 has been raised and will be doubled for this local fund.
Enter Albion College through the efforts of Pam Schuler, assistant director for Service and Leadership and her connections to a Detroit-based Kids Coalition Against Hunger (KCAH.) Since 2012 Schuler and her Albion College Student Volunteer Bureau members have been helping assemble nutritious dried food package meals for the KCAH with a third of the packaged meals staying in Albion for emergencies, one third distributed throughout the country and one third stored in a warehouse for disaster relief needs.





This spring the student volunteers were prepared to package 20,000 meals for this organization. Then COVID-19 struck. Albion College shut down, so no spring volunteer work could be completed.
With the local problem of buying enough food for distribution needs at the Albion Food Hub, Schuler turned to the KCAH and asked about accessing the prepacked meals for the Albion area.
The result was Albion received 66 cases of free food which means over 14,000 nutritious meals will be distributed to those in need. Albion resident Andy French filled a SUV with boxes as he made an emergency run last week to pick up these meals at the Westland KCAH warehouse.
Schuler said, “The Albion College student volunteers were disappointed that they could not package the number of meals they had planned to do this spring. However, the volunteers will be thrilled to know their previous efforts are helping the community. These students really connect with Albion and have a real heart for service.” Schuler is also the AHUW board treasurer and has been working with that group to help residents in the Albion-Homer area.
The Albion Food Hub plans to add fresh food to create different meals using the basic nutritious dried food ingredients. Funding for the food distributions comes from the Albion-Homer United Way emergency fund, local churches and organizations and the Albion Community Foundation who are underwriting these efforts.



Food Hub Food Box distributions are scheduled for the second Thursday from 5-7 PM, the third Tuesday from 4-6 PM and the fourth Tuesday from 5-7 PM. No income qualifications are necessary and all with food needs are welcome. The Albion Food Hub is located at 112 E. Erie St.
For emergency food needs other than the Food Hub Food Box distributions contact the Forks Senior Center at 517-629-3842 and a leave a message. The center has a grant from the Albion-Homer United Way to purchase food. Or area residents can call the First United Methodist Church at 517-629-9425 and leave a message if unable to pick up food at the distributions or have immediate food needs.
All contributions designed for the ERF will stay in the communities with 100% of dollars raised granted to help meet local agency needs. There will be no administrative fees charged. The AHUW board and other volunteers will review immediate local needs so funds can quickly get to organizations in our communities. You can send a check to Albion-Homer United Way P.O. Box 55 Albion, MI 49224 or donate on-line at www.albionhomeruw.org

I have listened and admired John Prrine for over 45 years, there will never be another on like him. Thanks for your genius.

This beautiful block print of Jesus washing a servant's feet was created by Cara B. Hochhalter, the daughter of Vernon Bobbitt, my art teacher at Albion College back in the day. His teachings and his legacy lives on.Maundy Thursday Foot-Washing....a block print from my book, “A Challenging Peace in the Life and Stories of Jesus.”
Peter seems to want a little more “social distancing” but Jesus is pretty excited to break down the barriers between master and servant....and all are blessed.

“WE ARE ALBION” RESOUNDS AS COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS HELP ALBION-We help each other.

This has been the resounding attitude in Albion and Homer as organizations join together to combat basic needs issues facing residents during the COVID-19 pandemic. From the Albion-Homer United Way Emergency Relief Fund, to the Greater Albion Chamber of Commerce providing critical information, to a “virtual” race to encourage donations, these two communities have rallied to help others.

During this critical time the Albion-Homer United Way has helped local organizations find ways to solve the immediate needs of community members. The primary emphasis has been on providing ways to access food. This task force of community leaders has been regularly meeting via conference calls to brainstorm and solve the ongoing problems facing residents of Albion and Homer.

The greatest push has been to raise money for the Albion-Homer United Way Relief Fund (ERF.) Giving to this fund has been matched by an Albion Community Foundation’s $12,500 grant for donations to this effort. Donations to this matching fund drive have reached over $4,200 which means $8,400 with the match to help the AHUW grant money to local non-profit organizations to help meet immediate needs for community residents.

All contributions designed for the ERF will stay in our communities with 100% of dollars raised granted to help meet local agency needs. There will be no administrative fees charged. The AHUW board and other volunteers will review immediate local needs so funds can quickly get to organizations in our communities. You can send a check to Albion-Homer United Way P.O. Box 55 Albion, MI 49224 or donate on-line at www.albionhomeruw.org

Adding to this emergency fund was the commitment from Run Albion to contribute all race proceeds and additional donations from the recent weekend pop-up virtual 5K. Runners and walkers recorded their times and distances during this virtual event. Coordinators stated “though we will not walk or run this 5K together in person we can take comfort in knowing that we are together in spirit.”

In other relief efforts AHUW recently funded $2,500 to buy food and meals which will be distributed by the Albion Food Hub and the Forks Senior Center to supplement the organizations already scheduled food distributions.

The Greater Albion Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau has been a clearinghouse for information about programs and help available in the community during this pandemic. For more information and websites about how to get help during this pandemic go to the greateralbionchamber.org webpage or chamber Face Book page.

Many restaurants in Albion and Homer have continued to provide take-out dining options. The Foundry Bakehouse and Deli has added a chance to help others while purchasing take out orders. According AHUW Board President Shane Williamson, “by purchasing a take-out-meal you can have the opportunity to donate a matching meal to the Albion Food Hub. The deli will deliver these meals to the Food Hub for distribution to any one in need in the community. “

AHUW funding has already been committed to help support K-5 childcare at Kids 'N' Stuff Childrens Museum for parents who have to continue to work. Priority has been given to children of parents working in essential services. However, this Battle Creek Family YMCA program at KNS will end this week unless more children attend this Albion site day camp.

The Friends of the Bohm Theatre may be closed due to COVID-19 but the historic theater is still helping Albion and Homer with its marque message to donate to the Albion-Homer United Way Emergency Relief Fund (ERF.) All donations will be matched up to $12,500 by the Albion Community Foundation with no administrative costs. Donations may be made to this fund at www.albionhomeruw.org or by sending a check to the AHUW at PO Box 55, Albion, MI 49224.
