Over 50 women from Ladies of the Lake enjoyed a chicken salad lunch and carrot cake at the Lakeview Lodge yesterday during their monthly meeting. President Jo Melfa began the meeting but excused herself early to tend to her husband who has recently been diagnosed with cancer. Anita Todd conducted the meeting in her absence.
Many club members brought food items to donate to the Chew Wanna Eat? Food Drive benefiting the DuBois Salvation Army. To date, Ladies of the Lake members have donated over $100 in food goods to the drive.
