Down River Dispatches


It’s definitely summer. The hay fields are full of activity, and I am missing the rain. My house has been filled with family for nearly two months, and it looks like that will change by the time this paper is published. Back to quiet times again, and believe me, I will miss that.

Please remember the West End Food Pantry when you are out doing your own grocery shopping. Pick up an extra can or two of soup, canned meats, canned fruit or veggies, add a few items to your cart to help out the pantry with "kid friendly" ready-to-eat or easy-to-prepare food items, such as breakfast cereal, peanut butter and jelly, top ramen, Spaghettios, mac-n-cheese, spaghetti and spaghetti sauce, fruit juices, granola bars, pudding or Jello cups. You can bring your donations to the Pantry, located in the Grays River Valley Center at Johnson Park (old Rosburg School) 1-5 p.m. on Thursdays. If not on Thursday, you can deposit in the drop box outside the door on the north end of the building, during the time the building is open.
