Winter is having a hard time letting go and each time snow is called for in the forecast one thinks this has to be the last time! Surely there will be more than two seasons in Illinois.
It is almost April and that is the last month for the Feinstein Challenge for the Cass County Food Pantry. The Cub Scouts were out picking up food last week and that along with all cash and food donations made in March and April will count toward the total submitted for the challenge. Make your donations before the end of April and be a part of the challenge to raise hunger awareness nationwide.
