McLouth Happenings

March 4, 2009

Due to the economy, there are families in our community in need of food. The food pantry at Pathway to Life Church welcomes donations. Non-perishable items may be delivered to the church, 201 E. Lucy in McLouth. For more information, call Jill Penrod at (913) 796-9999.

• Remember to set your clocks ahead one hour before going to bed Saturday night. Daylight Savings Time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday.

• Louise Gilbert will celebrate her 95th birthday from 2-5 p.m. Sunday in the church parlor at McLouth United Methodist Church. All friends and family are invited.

• McLouth Public Library's Book Discussion Group will meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday. For more information, please call (913) 796-2225.
