On Nov. 13, the AARP Chapter 1449 held a Food Drive for the St. Theresa Food Bank. "The members braved the cold weather to collect non-perishable food items," said member Shirley Lewis. Twenty-two persons participated and 791 food items were collected, which also included items purchased from cash donations. "Hats off to Chapter 1449 and thanks to Walmart, 308 N.
