Morning lunch was provided by some local ladies before the machines went to work. The harvest was completed in 4 1/2 hours. Pangman School children from Grades 1-6 were bused out to see first hand the Charity Farms Harvest to get the picture of what has made the Community Kitchen attached to the school gym possible. KFC and Pizza was brought out for supper, which was supplied by the Farm Credit Corporation.
Charity Farms is a combined effort of many volunteer community residents from the beginning of each spring with seeding, spraying, swathing and the final day of harvest and loading the grain into the bins for sale. There is a sigh of relief and gratitude when the grain is in the bins and always many thanks to be said for all the different helping hands that are involved each year with Charity Farms project.
Those involved this year with the Charity Farms crop were: Brian Jesse, John Freisen, Ken Kaufmann, Bill Peters, Henry Dyck, John Metke, Stan Shepherd, John Colbow, Wayne Colbow, Byron Ledingham, Dan Cordick, Mark Johnson, Stan Doughty (combine), EBourassa & sons, Roger Sambrook, Lawrence Fellner, Wayne Lozinsky, Adam Sambrook.

Work continues on the Daycare and Community Kitchen. In April they installed the water and sewer lines and also built the entry way into the Daycare.
In April you should have received a mail out from the Daycare advising that they are now accepting resumes for positions. They are also asking that you contact Sveta Lagun or a board member with enrollment possibilities, including part-time or occasional, as they need this information for planning.

This afternoon, March 9th, 2011, Artistic Masonry were out working on a fire wall which is being installed onto the Community Kitchen building. This fire wall is being made with concrete blocks. If there was a fire at the Community Kitchen this fire wall should prevent the fire from spreading to the Day Care.
