The Laddonia Community Betterment (LCBA) sponsored a coat and food drive for the month of October to benefit St. John’s Food Pantry, Laddonia. Pictured above is Jerry Johnson, Treasurer of LCBA, presenting a check in the amount of $200.00, donated by POET, to Mary Frances Hoyt, Co-Director of the food pantry. A separate check in the amount of $100.00 was also donated from LCBA. Also pictured are members of LCBA, (left to right) Martin Fennewald, Carla Hobbs, Amanda Grawe and Charlene Miller, President. LCBA wishes to thank all those who donated to make this a success! 100 pounds of food and several boxes and bags of new and like-new coats were collected. Without the support of the Laddonia community, this drive would not have been a success.
