Riverside United Methodist Church hosted the annual ecumenical Thank Meal on Thursday, Nov. 27, 2008.

Thanks to many helping hands and food donations from the community 500 meals were served at Riverside and 200 plus meals were delivered to shut-ins.

As treasurer at Riverside I would like to make the following accounting of the free will donations.

--Beginning balance 2007 - $7.27

--Donations - $2,978.99

--Minus food costs - $2,006.60

--Advertising costs - $343.80

After paying for the food costs and advertising, we are pleased to send the balance of $590 to the Hubbard County Food Shelf March Drive.
