The Christmas decorations are scheduled to be set up November 23 with the assistance by the Township Road crew. Clark’s Feed Mills donated 4 bales of straw for the display. Santa’s mailbox has also been placed; the staff of Manufacturer’s Bank & Trust will collect and respond to children’s letters if return addresses have been included on the letters.
A tax return for 2022 must be filed to maintain our 501-C6 tax status with the IRS. Joe Springer will file it on our behalf; the November financial report will be used for filing same.
Thank yous have been received from both food pantries we support for the Thanksgiving donations. Any input from the coordinators of the pantries is always welcome.
