Rotary Club to host work party this Saturday at new Lake Country Food Bank building

With construction continuing, Rotary says the project remains on track for opening early in New Year

The Lake Country Rotary Club has planned a work party for this Saturday at the new Food Bank building as the final pieces of the puzzle start to fall into place for the new Lake Country Food Bank.

Members of the community are invited to grab some work gloves and spend some time helping out at the building, being constructed next to the Winfield Seniors Centre.

The work party will begin at 9 a.m. and will continue until the work gets done to install interior walls (OSB sheets).

There will be coffee and lunch available.

Volunteers are asked to check in with Tom Roth on site to be assigned a task.

It’s expected the new food bank building will be complete and ready to move into early in the New Year.

Christmas hampers will be handed out at the old food bank this year as workers look to make the transition to the new building in January, should work continue to progress.
