The Food Drive and Ice Cream Social was held on Saturday, September 1, 2018, at the Steadman Pavilion from 2-4 p.m. It was a fun time for Webster Lake residents to socialize. The food and leftover ice cream was delivered to the Twin Rivers Interfaith Food Pantry. They were very appreciative as they are open Tuesday and Thursday mornings and Wednesday evenings for people in need. The cash was given to the Bread and Roses Soup Kitchen. They were also very appreciative; money is used to purchase food used in preparing meals for their Monday and Thursday dinners.
