Post office to host food drive May 14
On May 14, Colorado and Wyoming letter carriers will collect food on their routes to feed the hungry in their communities as part of the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.
All the food collected goes to local community food banks and pantries for distribution to those who most need it throughout the year.
In 2010, Colorado and Wyoming residents combined to donate nearly one million pounds of food in the postal drive to feed the hungry in their states.
Items most needed are canned meats, soups, fruits and vegetables; dry/non-perishable packaged items with lots of protein/carbohydrates like powdered milk, pasta, cereals; and dried packaged vegetables like mashed potatoes and stuffing.
Postal customers wishing to donate food should put canned, packaged and non-perishable food items in a plastic bag and leave it by their mailboxes on May 14 before mail delivery.
Dance scheduled for May 21
A country dance is scheduled for May 21 at Lodore Hall in Browns Park.
The doors open at 5 p.m., and dancing starts at 7 p.m.
Admission is free and dinner will be available.
The event includes cake walks, a cake drawing, a quilt auction and door prizes.
For more information, call 269-3000 or 272-3213.
