More Carts

FHA President Michael Labate has received 21 discarded shopping carts from Mollie Stone’s.  Most were in good shape, and he has scavenged wheels off several and started labeling the good ones for the different docks. So far he’s delivered one large and one small cart each to West Kappas, East Kappas, A Dock and Gate 6 ½. If you need replacement carts for your dock, contact Michael directly.
