Stratford & Area Food Drive - Sunday, November 19 -- Door-to-door pick-up by volunteers: 1:00pm-3:00pm. As this event is organized by Assumption Parish, a sign-up sheet for volunteer drivers and runners is in the Foyer. We have 35+ routes to cover. If you can only drive, but need runners, please sign-up for a route... we will assign runners and vice versa. The Food Drive covers Stratford and surrounding areas extending out to River Meadow Estates in Mermaid; TransCanada Highway to the Mount Albion Irving and the Pownal Road (to intersection with the Gay Road). The MacLennan, Gay & Jones Roads are also included.
