Getting ready to help the needy at Christmas


There was lots of chili to go around as Christ Anglican Church held its annual fundraiser for Christmas for Everyone on Friday. The tables were full through most of the luncheon which raised $1,000 for the Christmas drive. Here, Jean St. Pierre helps Lynn McPhail get a bowl of the famous chili.

 The Petrolia Foodbank is now accepting applications for people in need of food hampers and toys at Christmas. Last year 425 boxes were given out in Central Lambton to Grand Bend. Organizers expect this year 460 may be needed.
