6th Annual Community Food Drive Apr 2011
Magrath Community Food Drive a Great Success again this Year! Thank you to all who helped make this years food drive go so smoothly! The Magrath Lions Club organizes the event in conjunction with members of local churches. Youth groups and their leaders/parents drop off the 1200 flyers during the week before and then go around again on the Saturday morning to pick up donations from all of you. Thanks also to Wes Olsen of Welling and Calvin Heggie of Custom Windows for use of their trailers and their time to drive the collections into the Lethbridge Food Bank. Thanks to Roger, Adrien, Arlen, Cal, Wes, Matt, Scott and Jeff who traveled into town to unload the trucks. All done by 12:45 this year, yay!
To whoever was in charge of the weather, thank you as well! It held off snowing all day but now we have several inches accumulation on the roads again. We will know the final results later this week after all the donations have been weighed at Lethbridge Food Bank. If we missed anyone this year, we apologize for our volunteer crews. Any additional donations can be left at the Magrath Pharmacy and the Lions will take them into Lethbridge as well. Thanks again.
Background: The Magrath Lions coordinated the 6th Annual Magrath and District Community Food Drive on Saturday 16th Apr 2011 from about 9-noon.
