Chute Pond Snowmobile Club Donates to Christian Food Pantry
Issue Date: January 3, 2019
Members of the Chute Pond Snowmobile Club took non-perishable food items to their club Christmas Party in December, which were donated to the Christian Food Pantry at St. John Lutheran Church in Townsend. About 100 members participated in the food drive, resulting in a donation of over 300 pounds.
The Christian Food Pantry (CFP) at St. John is a ministry of area Christian churches. Contributing congregations include St. Mary of the Lakes, Lakewood and its satellite churches in Silver Cliff and Crooked Lake. Also, St. Ambrose in Wabeno, St. Michael's Chapel in Mountain, Forest Larger Parish Presbyterian Churches in Lakewood and Wabeno, and Tabor Lutheran Church in Mountain. They have been serving the community on a regular basis since March of 1999.
CFP serves the towns of Townsend, Lakewood, Mountain, Suring, and Wabeno. Anyone who needs help is welcome to register regardless of income. A box of non-perishable food items is given to each family. The number of items depends on family size as does the amount of the perishable food grocery voucher, ranging from $10 - $30 and good at Mikes in Townsend or SuperValu in Lakewood.
Open sessions are twice monthly on the second and fourth Wednesdays, 9 am and 6 pm on each day and staying open until all are served. Johnsonville sausage is available at each session as well as sundry items donated by Eileen's Confectioners in Green Bay. At holiday time there are gifts for the children from the "Heart Tree" at Lakewood SuperValu, and hams, turkeys, and fresh vegetables.
Chute Pond Snowmobile Club maintains over 100 miles of snowmobile trails in the area around Chute Pond, near Mountain. Trails run south to Suring, east to Crooked Lake, north to Lakewood, and west to Boulder Lake. The club owns and maintains four trail groomers to keep trails in great condition throughout the winter.
