Penobscot Pet Pantry

Another successful--if light--pantry this month.  We had as many recipients (27) as has been normal lately...maybe even a few more than normal...but the food going out (962 lbs.) was way down.  That's dry food...there were 4 cases of cans that went out, too.  But...we used to hand out better than a ton of food every month.  2000+ lbs. 
I have no idea what's happening except to think that people are going/have gone back to work and don't need us as much as they did.  Sniff! 
In any case, we were happy to have Sally, Dee, Tracy, Gordy, Chrissy, Traci (I'm glad they spell their names differently!) and Lonnie help set up tables and bag eight barrels of food and a table of treats.  Gray brought the doughnut holes!
The afternoon was over just about before it started.  Bruce, Tom, Dee, Gordy (at The Table) and Lonnie handed out the food and treats (lots of treats) in the wink of an eye.  We were done by 1:10 and packing things up.  Gordy and I had the empties back in the barn by 1:30.
Speaking of empties and what-not...we've got plenty of already bagged food, so won't have to pack any next month (11-1).  We'll need some help setting up, but if you usually come in the morning and want to take a day off, November would be a good time to do that.

Thanks for your help, guys.  Have a good Hallowe'en and we'll do it all over again next month.
See you then!
