Christmas basket program has lots of helpers

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of the people who helped make our annual Christmas basket program a success. We could not have done it without the support of the Forest Grove Elks Lodge, the Cornelius and Forest Grove fire departments, Forest Grove Health and Fitness and the high school's annual food drive.

Many thanks to Boy Scout Troop #159 for help with delivery and Grande Foods for help with last-minute food purchases. All of us working together helped make Christmas better for families in need in our area.

Karen Shepard and Jay Hardin, program chairmen
