Dear Editor;

The young people of Woodlands Pathfinder and Adventurer clubs would like to thank the residents of Ponoka for their generous support of our annual fall food drive. Youth from the clubs and students of Woodlands Adventist School, distributed grocery bags to doorsteps, Saturday the 18th of Oct, and returned to pick them up Sunday morning the 19th.

The club delivered slightly over 1,200 pounds of groceries to the Ponoka Food Bank. This is a two hundred pound increase from last fall’s drive. The food bank staff voiced their appreciation of this effort.

The club would also like to thank Extra Foods of Ponoka for their support in supplying the grocery bags for the drive, and IGA for their last minute help as well, as we needed a few more bags than anticipated.

Sincerely,

Gerald Ganson
