Dear Sall3 May 10th was the 22nd Annual NALC food drive, The rain held off until the very end. I would like to thank all those residents of Norwalk, Cumming and Martensdale for their generous donations. Scott's Foods and Fareway stepped up to help also, it was greatly appreciated. We collected 1,964 pounds of food for our local food pantry in Lakewood. It was 132 pounds less than last year, but still a lot of food. I realize that there have been so many smaller food drives the past few months and you can't donate to everything. We really appreciate all the great people in the area who are willing to help out when asked. In these days of economic downturn and so many unemployed it was truly great to see so much outpouring of generosity. We collected a large variety of items to stock our lo- cal food pantry this year. It should be full for a few months. Thanks to all the postal employees who worked that day, they put in that extra effort to make it happen, I am proud to be a part of that team. We had some new people helping this year, Hunter Reid and-Scott Kern, new employees stayed until the end and helped transport food to the church. Postmaster Kristi Douglas and her two grandsons, Charlie and Dillon Slaugh went around Lakewood and pickedup food and brought it back to the post office. I drove around town and collecteda lot and went back to the post office to weigh it all and put in tubs. Thank you to Dominic Cimino for loariing me the scale to weigh it all, it sure was a big help!! It was a long daTfi but Todd Greenslit, Hunter Reid, Scott Kern, Sharon Ripperger and I stayed until all the weighing was done, trucks loaded at the post office and unloaded at the church. Thank you so much! Without the help and continued support of employ- ees and residents we could not have made it such a suc- cess. We are looking forward to next year. Some residents say they had no idea we did this. I am sorry for the miscommunication. We deliver post- cards to everyone in town the week of the drive and put articles in the local newspaper. If anyone has any idea how to promote this more please let me know and I will try to do it for the 23rd next year. /s/Pat Wahl, President, NALC Branch 6265 Norwalk High School Girls Varsity Tennis Norwalk High School Gifts JV Tennis POLICE REPORT Disclaimer: All defendants are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
