Food Resources Bank to celebrate ninth harvest


An FRB team is planning to visit this project in early December. Anyone interested in joining the team should attend the Oct. 20 celebration to visit with Marv Baldwin, president and CEO of FRB, and with Steve Witt of Elvira for more information.

The celebration begins at 12:30 p.m. at Zion Lutheran Church. There will be a prayer ritual giving thanks and then a potluck supper will follow in the basement of the church. The FRB group is roasting a hog for the dinner; drinks will be provided. After the dinner, those attending will gather outside around a bonfire to roast s’mores, make some homemade ice cream on in old ice cream maker, shell corn with an old hand sheller and play some games. Everyone will have the opportunity to ride a combine as it combines the corn in the field.
