The Laddonia Community Betterment recently held a coat and food drive to assist St. John’s Food Pantry.

More than 100 pounds of food and several new and like-new coats were collected.  Laddonia Community Betterment meets on the first Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Ed French Memorial Library. All residents of Laddonia and those outside of Laddonia with a 63352 zip code are welcome to join. New members are always needed and visitors are welcome.  There will be no meeting in December and the next meeting will be January 7.
