Since August 2013, Flory, of Flory Family Farms, has been selling his pork produce at the Lawrence Farmers Market as a “ floating vendor,” but this year Flory said he’s coming back with his own specific stand location. “ As a floater you get there and you don’t know if there’s room for you or where they’re going to put ya,” he said. “ But now the customers can walk right up to us, they know right where we’re at, and that’s a huge benefit.” The Lawrence Farmers Market, which opens Saturday, boasts 80 to 100 independent vendors, said Jack Wilson, a member of the market and owner of Washington Creek Lavender. “ Everything is made or grown locally,” Wilson said. “ It’s unlike a lot of others.

Bill Gollier, educator with energy T o California native Margie Lawrence, her co- worker, Bill Gollier, is what’s known in the Midwest as “ good people.” For nearly a decade, Gollier a teacher at Bishop Seabury Academy, has been carting students to volunteer opportunities around town. “ He is one of the most beloved teachers on campus,” Lawrence said. “ He has this incredible ability to speak to and engage the boys and girls. He has this affinity for kids, they trust and look up to him.” Each student at Bishop Seabury, 4120 Clinton Parkway, is required to put in 30 hours of community service each year, Lawrence said. And seniors are required to do a 30- hour service project on top of their normal volunteer time. The community service project idea came to the school with Gollier in 2006, Lawrence said, and they’ve never looked back.
