Food Bank says thanks for the support from the community

Silent auction and baked goods that helped bring in approximately $4,300 during Christmas event

Bobbi Bordeleau (l) presents a $500 cheque from Clearwater-Vavenby Lions Club to Harry James of Clearwater and District Food Bank. The donation was one of several made during a community concert held Saturday

Editor, The Times:

The Clearwater and District Food Bank Christmas Concert and Silent Auction/Bake Sale was held on Dec. 5.

Six local groups and individuals provided a variety of music that was highly entertaining. The groups include Calvin Lutz and his Band in a Box, the Steve James Garage Band, Sandy Crane’s Strings, Barbara Hall and Grant Gale, the Courtney Johnson Dance Group and the Clearwater Community Chorus.

We appreciate the contributions of all their talents to the success of the evening.

We also thank the following who contributed to the success of the event: the providers of the auction items and the baked goods that helped bring in approximately $4,300 not including the major donations that were presented at the concert; Lloyd Bishop, Dr. Bob Mackenzie and Doug Fenwick for providing and operating the superb sound system; Debbie Caldwell, Kim Strickland, Susan and John McFarland, Reo and Sherry Joubert for the setup and manning of the silent auction and bake sale; Cal Lutz for helping with the coordination and setup for the concert: and all others who contributed their assistance.

The final and not the least thank you goes to those who attended the event and enjoyed the concert and supported the Food Bank with donations, bidding on the auction items and buying the baked goods.

It was a successful evening thanks to all of the above.

The proceeds of this event help us to provide nutritious hampers to approximately 80 individuals each month. We need your continued support to continue to provide for the needy in our community.

Keep your eyes open for the mid-season food drive on the second Saturday in June 2016 and keep the first Saturday in December 2016 year open for our next talent filled event.

Thanks again to all who make the Clearwater and District Food Bank a success.

Harry James
