Arvest Bank Lead Hill, appreciates everyone in the community for coming out to the beans and cornbread dinner and silent auction last Saturday at the Diamond City Community Center and for the generosity, donating to the Million Meal campaign which directly benefits the Good Neighbor Food Cupboard. A special shout out to Larry Frantz cooking with assistance from his wife, Kathy, and some dicing and frying of potatoes by Sarah Austin. Katie Ratliff and Kathy Frantz served, while Larry and Brenda Nutter manned the money box. It looked and sounded like all the folks enjoyed the dinner and were having a great time. On Wednesday and Thursday, May 29-30, there will be a bake sale at the bank with all proceeds benefiting the food cupboard. This year’s campaign ends on Saturday, June 1, however, the Good Neighbor Food Cupboard always accepts donations.
