The Community Food Pantry is usually open on the last Wednesday afternoon of each month from 3-5 p.m. in the church basement. However, due to Thanksgiving, the next Food Pantry day will be on Tuesday, Nov. 25. Anyone in the Staunton area in need of help is welcome. We truly appreciate the support of our friends at Staunton First Christian Church, as well as other churches, civic organizations, and individuals, in helping to make this needed outreach a success. A container is located in the Staunton Town Office for anyone who would like to contribute non-perishable food items.

Please remember to keep praying for everyone who is battling illness, as well as all the brave men and women of our military and their families. Also remember in prayer all the folks in nursing homes and hospitals, and those who have lost loved ones. Go out of your way to be kind to someone, and pray for everyone.

If you have news to share, send it to me at 4954 W. Happy Holler Rd., Brazil. All news is greatly appreciated.
