Henry Armstrong was a happy camper as he picked up the See’s Candy basket from the Isabelle Hunt Memorial Library in Pine on Dec. 23. His wife, Linda, had the winning raffle ticket for the annual fund-raising event. The library sells Sees Candy and has the Candy Basket raffle each holiday season to raise funds to provide valuable programs to the community. If you didn’t win this year, you can still obtain some of the See’s chocolates or candy at the library on Randall Place in Pine until supplies run out.

An overwhelming response from the community filled the Pine-Strawberry Food Bank donation bins this holiday season, with a surplus of food for several months to come. In recent months, the food bank was concerned as the bank account and supplies were “desperately low,” said Marti Heinert, but “thanks to the fantastic cash and food donations, we were able to feed 105 families at Thanksgiving and 96 families at Christmas, without having to buy much at all.” The first annual Turkey Drive was a huge success, bringing in sufficient turkeys for both Thanksgiving and Christmas.
