Food drive a success; blood drive is Wednesday

Down River Dispatches


This is a long awaited week coming up for me. I will have three of my granddaughters here with me and a niece and great niece. If anyone has any suggestions for something fun to do with five girls ages 35 to 12, please let me know.

News from Naselle:

Eighth grade Move-up for Naselle-Grays River Valley will take place tonight at 6 p.m. Congratulations to all the students.

The final day of school for Naselle students is Monday. I want to wish everyone a safe and happy summer.

Westend news:

Another Blood Drive is coming up next week on Wednesday at the Valley Bible Church in Rosburg. The drive will take place between 12:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. Appointments are still available, and you can book your own time by going to the Red Cross website. I’m sure walk-ins are also welcome.

Summertime is a busy time for most of us, but remember, by giving this life giving donation, you are doing a great service to an individual and their family. We all know someone who has benefitted from this practice and hopefully we never need the procedure ourselves. So, please give, if you are able to.

April Zimmerman will be providing her famous sliders for the enjoyment of the donors. They are always delicious.

Our local West End Food Pantry will be needing more supplies to meet the needs of families throughout the summer months. Canned fruits, cereals, mac and cheese, canned meats such as tuna and chicken, juice, peanut butter and jelly, pasta, canned raviolis, etc.

I received a notice from Lori Hamp with the following message. “The West End Food Pantry would like to thank all of those at the Naselle Youth Camp who contributed in the "Spread the Love" food drive last month! Over 200 pounds of peanut butter and jelly were collected. This is something we always run out of quickly, and with school nearly out it couldn't have come at a better time. Thanks again and God bless you!” We do live in a unique and giving community, don’t we?

You can also mail cash donations to the pantry or deliver items personally on Thursdays, 1-5 p.m. They are located in Johnson Park on the north end of the building (old Rosburg School).

The Rosburg Wednesday Senior Lunch Bunch meets every week in the Rosburg Hall for a delicious home cooked meal prepared and served by Pat Potter and her volunteer crew.
