One Good Thing: If you are interested in the foraging walk mentioned in yesterday’s Morning Minute and found the link didn't link, here’s the actual link for the walk.

Matthews nature maven Debbie LeBlanc Foster shared something fun to do this weekend—and it might involve hedgehogs! This Saturday from 11 am to 1 pm Steve Hughes will be at Backyard Birds in Plantation Market Shopping Center (1819 Matthews Township Pkwy).
