WEST CARTHAGE Village Mayor Scott M. Burto has initiated another fundraiser to benefit the Village Ecumenical Ministries Food Pantry.
Businesses are asked to decorate for the holiday season while incorporating a food-collection box. The displays should be no larger than 10 square feet. Displays will be photographed and judged by River Area Council of Governments board members.
Prizes of $50 each, donated by Carthage Federal Savings & Loan Association, will be awarded for most food collected and most festive display.
There is a $25 entry fee, with checks made payable to VEM Food Pantry. Food items must be delivered to the pantry, 454 S. Washington St., on Dec. 17.
To enter, mail the check along with business name, address, contact name and phone number to Deborah J. Pierce, Village of West Carthage, 61 High St., Carthage, N.Y. 13619.
