Mantua – On Thursday, April 21, a luncheon was held at Mantua Hilltop Church to honor all those who volunteer at the Food cupboard. The Council Members provided a delicious luncheon of salads, desserts and croissants. 40 volunteers attended plus a few honored guests who had been active in the past.
Terri Wilde, president of council, presented a program about the history of 4 C’s. The program is 30 years old in October and has been serving the Crestwood Community all that time. Terri told of the beginnings of the program and related how some things have changed over the years, especially the numbers served and the location. She asked for memories from other members and several people shared stories of the past. Pat Sargent told of one person who donated a cow that he bought at the fair. Joan Siman has kept a scrapbook of pictures and newspaper articles and a picture of the cow was there for all to see.
Terri praised all the volunteers and thanked them for the work they have done over the years. She also thanked the community for the wonderful support the cupboard receives. Without the community support and the dedicated volunteers the food cupboard could not continue. At the end of the program Terri Wilde announced that this would be her last year as president. All of the volunteers are sad to see her go. She has done such a great job during her presidency. A big THANKS goes out to Terri for all her hard work.
