Dear Sall) May 14, was a cool rainy day but it didn't stop Letter Carriers from picking up food for their annual Food Drive Day. I would like to thank all the people of Norwalk, Martensdale and Cumming for their gener- ous donations. Scott's Foods and Fareway stepped up to help also and it was greatly appreciated. This year we collected 2,380 pounds for our local food bank at New Life Lutheran Church. They should be well stocked for the next few months. My hat goes off to Shirley Geyer and her crew for sorting all that food and being there for the people of Norwalk when needed. 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. Thanks to Dominic Cimino for the use of the scale, it makes it so easier to weigh the food with it." After all the carriers were in from their routes Sharon Ripperger and Todd Greenslit, along with my husband Mike Wahl stayed to sort and weigh everything out on the cold loading dock so it could be transported to the church. Made for a long day but Shirley Geyer stayed late at the church and at 6:00 we made it there. Without the help and continued support of the com-- munities we could not have made it such a success. Again, I would like to say THANK YOU to the resi- dents for their generosity in this once a year worthwhile event, it was very much appreciated. /s/Pat Wahl, President, NALC Branch 6265 OBITUARY LY LAN UNG Services were held Saturday, May 21 in Des Moines for Ly Lan Ung, 66, Norwalk, who died Sunda36 May 15, at Norwalk Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
