Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper scheduled for tomorrow night has been cancelled. Weather conditions do not look favorable for this event.  Mother Nature needs to stop interrupting our events.


Thank You from the Food Pantry!

I want to thank everyone for their response to the needs of the Food Pantry.  With your donations and the $350 +/- spent by the Food Pantry, we have been able to restock the shelves.  We are still short of peanut butter, personal products and laundry supplies.  


Please keep the donations coming.  We now provide food to almost as many clients in a week as we used to provide to a month's worth of clients just 2 years ago.  Just today, we had two people come in who needed food for their families.  Neither had satisfactory vision to fill out the forms.  We were able to provide food and because of a donation of magnifying reading glasses, we were also able to provide reading glasses.  It was so rewarding to see how excited these folks were to be able to see well enough to read and write.  


So please remember, no matter what you give, there is someone out there who cannot afford to buy it and is very grateful for your donation.  Please keep the food coming.  The shelves are looking much better, but the food goes out as fast as it comes in.  


Thank you again for responding to our need......Di


Diane Newton, Secretary

The below items are needed by the food pantry.  


Also, our supply of frozen meats is almost non-existent this month.  We find the time between the holidays and Lent to be very lean in the food pantry.   Please consider, also donating canned meats of any kind to help supplement the food baskets.


     *Ramen noodles



     *Granola bars


     *Baking items like muffin mix, cake mix and pie shells

     *Canned meals like spaghetti o's, ravioli, beef stew

     *Boxed complete meals

     *Canned vegetables, but not green beans

     *Peanut butter



  As always, anything you can give is gratefully accepted.....


Thanks for supporting the food pantry!

CCEA Presents

CCEA Gala "A Blast from the Past" has been cancelled for this weekend and rescheduled for April 9. 

Sorry for the change but we cannot control the weather.  A scheduling issue with the band requires that we move the event from the original snow date.  We would also like to avoid holding the event during the Lenten season. 

Thank you for your understanding and support.
