Heartfelt gratitude goes out to all who made the Senior Citizen's project of collecting 1000 Best Choice bar code labels a success. Ms. Lanell Gallegoes started the project with the citizens on her meal delivery route in the fall. Her goal was to collect the maximum number which would bring $60 to the Senior Citizens Center for material for activities or to purchase something to add to the Center. With time and many discussions, it was determined the one item that would be appreciated by the majority of people would be an insert for the fireplace as building a fire daily is not practical. With that in mind, Ms. Gallegoes invited the employees of the City of Wilburton, as well as residents within the city to contribute to their growing number of bar codes.
A successful count was achieved by the December deadline and the check was received on January 17 for $60.
