“If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.”

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30: FOOD SHELF HOURS: 12 NOON TO 6 PM

We thank everyone who donated so generously to the Food Shelf.

We will be open this last Wednesday of November and, weather permitting, each Wednesday
and the first Saturday of each month for the coming months.

NOTIFICATION IF FOOD SHELF IS CLOSED: As in past years, if school is canceled due to weather during the winter on a Wednesday, the Food Shelf will also be closed.

Please remember to leave space for traffic to come into and leave the school next door.

MASK WEARING: ​Please continue to wear a mask when talking with Food Shelf volunteers. Volunteers continue to wear masks throughout their shifts. COVID-19 is still out here, but just as important, the Flu virus has arrived.

Please stay safe and well!
