OVERVIEW OF THE FOOD BANK.

Volunteer "Miss Dorothy"  (Dot Mehler)  is the voice of the food bank. Homebound, she manages to fulfill her civic duties on all fronts. An active member of the Lacey Senior Council she is a neighborhood activist, always working to protect and enhance the quality of life in Lacey. The clients love to hear her friendly reminders and in turn , they pass along their needs to her. Assisting her in her calls is her new little helper, Ms. Roxie Mehler. (Dot reports that the bag is merely recreational)

"MR. FOODBANK"
The Lacey Food Bank lost a  friend and comrade on June 2nd, when Emil Ciangetti, former Chairman, and one of the original founders of the food bank, died as a result of an automobile accident.
 
 Emil, 81,  was a loving father to his grandson Steve, who he adopted as a young boy. He was involved  in the food bank until his death, and belonged to many civic organizatons as well as being active in the Village Lutheran Church in Lanoka Harbor. He is honored for his  many good deeds performed within his family and his community.
Rest in Peace Friend.

Ralph Lanuto, shown here with his wife Edna, was a pioneer in the foodbank, back when Emil, Ziggie and he were the only ones manning the "fort'. An active civic minded man, he served as our liaison to clubs and organizations. We miss his hearty laugh and helping hands.
