Bradford County Dairy Princess Brooke Ostrander presents a check for $500 to the Troy Food Pantry. Garry Zuber accepts the check. The grant came through Glen Gorrell, a diary farmer from East Smithfield, who requested the money from the Mid-Atlantic Grants Program of Land O'Lakes, Inc. The program works to improve quality of life by supporting worthy projects and charitable endeavors.
Rev. Zuber was very appreciative of the gift and said, "Everything people do for us is wonderful." He noted that the Food Pantry still is seeking a permanent home. Due to the Food Pantry's ability to take advantage of a statewide organization, the money will go even farther to combat hunger. Erin Cole of First Citizens Community Bank's Troy Office assisted with the project.

John Brenchley of the Canton Foundation. The grant will be
used for the belfry at the Hoagland School which is one of the exhibits at the Manley-Bohlayer Heritage Farm.
