The Salvation Army would like to thank the Boy Scouts of America in the Brainerd area for the fantastic job they did during their food drive in October. They collected over 9,700 pounds of food for our food shelf. This food is very much needed as the summer months and Katrina disaster has taken a toll on our food supply. Food shelf usage is on the rise. Without the support we receive from sources such as the Boy Scouts we wouldn't be able to meet the increasing need of our growing community. We also want to thank the following businesses that helped with the Boy Scout drive: Wells Fargo, Cub Foods, BL Broadcasting, and the Brainerd Dispatch. Thank you for a great job well done.

The members of the Brainerd Area Zonta Club want to thank Annette Weber and Girl Scout Troop 393 for their help with our highway clean-up.
The Girl Scouts have been helping us for the past two years to keep our section of highway clean and tidy. We picked over 18 bags of garbage and litter from our two-mile area on 210. We couldn't do it without them. Thanks, girls.
Also thanks to Zonta members Monica Husen, Girl Scout coordinator; Jeanni Foss and Calvin; Ginny, Theo, Oliver and Helen Knudson; Dianne, Cassandra and Billy Kendall and my grandson, Joe. It was fun! People don't know what they are missing if they don't help clean up our highways.
Thanks to Mary at MnDOT, who keeps us supplied with bags and aprons and cheers us on!
