On Oct. 12, Rutland United Methodist Church held its third annual Chocolate Festival and Silent Auction at the Holiday Inn.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank area merchants, newspapers and other media that made donations to this worthy project. Because of your generosity we are able to turn over $9,500 into donations to the needy of the area.
These organizations receiving help include the Mission, Dismas House, Her Story, Community Cupboard, Dodge House, BROCís Feed the Freezer, and our Pastorís Fund to help those that come to us almost daily for food and essentials.
Thank you to all who contributed and we look forward to being able to repeat this next year.
