“Never underestimate the difference YOU can make in the lives of others. Step forward, reach out and help. This week reach to someone that might need a lift.”
― Pablo Valle
The Board of Directors of the Colchester Food Shelf would like to honor our long-time board member, Lucien Belisle, who passed away recently. He was a great supporter of the food shelf, always keeping on top of maintenance work for the building and working with his wife, Carmelita, on larger projects like painting the floor several times over the years, as well as their work with the Colchester Lion’s Club, which frequenting benefited the food shelf. We offer our profound gratitude to Lucien and deepest sympathy to Carmelita and their family.
