A pleasant surprise

To the Editor:

On Friday, Feb. 7, Dan and I had some errands to do and decided that we would also go have lunch just to get out of the house and treat ourselves. After we were finished with the errands, we went to Green Mill, where we experienced a very pleasant surprise, an unknown couple who were sitting near us had paid for our lunch when they finished theirs and they left the restaurant. Whoever you are, Dan and I would like to thank you for your generosity and kindness and are planning to “pay it forward.” God bless you.

Consider helping out

To the Editor:

The annual food pack for Kid’s Against Hunger will be held Saturday at the Fairmont National Guard Armory.

We are in need of volunteers for the food pack. We can use any and all to help on Saturday. If you would like to participate but are unable to be there Saturday, financial assistance is always welcome.

When Fairmont Kids Against Hunger first came to the area, I was curious about the pack. I just didn’t take the time to help but knew that it was something I wanted to know about and to be a part of. Last year, Rotary, of which I am a member, decided to have a team at the pack. I signed up and was so surprised at how fast our shift went. Two hours can fly by when having so much fun. A little friendly competition is always fun. We wanted to pack as many meals as we could and do it accurately. We helped reach the goal and even went beyond that.

Our goal this year is to pack 125,000 meals and raise $25,000 to pay for the meals and shipping. Donations can be sent to Kids Against Hunger in c/o Sue Homan, 921 Hengen St., Fairmont, MN 56031.

I am on the KAH committee and have been amazed at the impact these packs have on those who help and how many are helped globally and locally with the food. To find out more about KAH, please find us at www.kahfairmontmn.weebly.com

Thank you for your sincere consideration in helping this year’s pack achieve our goals.
