JCFB Women's Committee Celebrates Food-Check Out Week

To commemorate KFB Food Check-Out Week, the Jackson County Women’s Committee held a drawing for two $25 gift certificates to a local Save-A-Lot grocery store. There were nearly 200 entries for the drawing.  Congratulations to John Wilson of Annville and Cora Marcum of McKee.  Each won a $25 gift certificate to Save-A-Lot.

Throughout the week, the Women's Committee distributed flyers about Food Check-Out to customers who visited the local Farm Bureau office.  They also ran ads in the local newspapers, on local radio stations, and posted information in the county office.

 

John Wilson won a $25 gift certificate to Save-A-Lot.
