March is the S tatewide Food Driw Month The Minnesota FoodShare Foundation and the Feinstein Foundation sponsor a state- wide food drive month. Following the generous donations during the holiday season, donations tend to decline in early spring. This fact, along with the generos- ity and determinations of these two Foundations, makes March an excellent month to make donations! During March, Western Community Action's Mary and Martha's Pantry will be participating in an on-going donation collection for this Annual Food Drive. We will be accepting food, hygiene products, and monetary donations, which are all impgrtant. Much of the funds raised: throughout the year are used to purchase food items through Second Harvest (a food bank) allow- ing us to buy them at an extremely low cost. For example, a case of canned fruit can be purchased for only $1. Items through this food bank are limited or may not be available so your donation of items is essential as well. Donations in March spread further than any other time of the year. All food donations are weighed and all monetary donations are added together and reported to Minnesota FoodShare. Funds raised by FoodShare through corpora- tions and individual donors go into a "food fund." All food shelves that participate receive a portion of that food fund based on what they raise in their community and also the number of people they serve all year long. This is called the March Campaign Incentive. The Feinstein Foundation divides $1 mil- lion among hunger fighting agencies nationwide using it to help them raise funds dur- ing this time. Your generosity is greatly appreciated in any amolmt of food or monetary gifts. Let us join together to make a difference in our community. Donations can be allocated to the food shelf of your choice. Local donations can be dropped off at Mary and Martha's Pantry, 524 1st Avenue Westbrook, MN 56183. If you have any ques- tions, please call Margaret Palan, Western Community Action, Community Resource Specialist at 507- 537-1416 or the Westbrook Food Shelf at 507-274-5218.

Lion's Club fishin trl By Maw Sorenson The Westbrook Lion's Club, spearheaded by Larry Anderson, sent a group of men and women from our area to Ballards Resort, on Lake of the Woods, for two days of ice fishing. Due to an incoming winter storm Larry rallied his troupes and started eight hours early at midnight on the 19th of February. This was great because we missed the storm, however, one slight problem, we were set to arrive way too early. I believe I may have had two or three breakfast meals on the way up while we were trying to delay Our arrival. Once we arrived most of the group was going on over thirty hours since getting up, what a group of party ani- mals, by seven p.m. almost everyone was tucked away and sound asleep. On Monday with most everyone bright eyed and bushy tailed we left the resort knowing that each of us were going to catch their limit and set a new state record for Walleye. Everyone did catch fish and a couple caught their limit, but, the state record still is the same. At the end of the day all the men were feel- ing fairly good, because the ~,i~; V .=,,=o, From left: Bill Olson, Wayne Kling, Jim Anderson and Larry Anderson. Submitted photo four young ladies who had out fished everyone last year didn't have a great day. Our joy was short lived, on the second day they righted their world, and left everyone in .the dust once again. On Monday everyone helped Jim Westerman cele- brate a birthday. No one was sure which one, but someone said the Fire Marshall refused to allow that many candles on one cake. Fish were caught, lies were told, jokes were shared, and after we returned the one question asked by most everyone was where and when they could sign up for next years trip.
