Meeting in November, members of Chester Arbor welcomed as guests representatives from the county food pantries.

The IMPACT activity the Arbor completed allowed them to present all the pantries in the county a sum of $250 to furnish the needs of their individual pantries.

During this meeting, a purpose was established for the Arbor, “In which we strive to unite, serve and set an example for our community.”

Officers for the coming year were elected and they are Rita Barton, president; Deb Noll, vice president; Lisa Hull, secretary; Kevin Evans, treasurer; Jim Osborn and Bret Foster, co- chaplains and Linda Ruehrmund, publicity.

Mike Wilson was selected as the Community Volunteer Recipient for his work with the Ohio Historical Society. The group also discussed support of the Mount Gilead School Food Project, helping with Dixie Shinaberry’s Christmas tree project and plans for Meals on Wheels Christmas remembrances.

The Arbor also plans to adopt a family for Christmas from each of the county schools.

Noll will be preparing a newsletter with updates of its activities and will be sent to each of the Arbor members.

The next meeting is Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. in the Edison Baptist Church Fellowship Hall.
