Accept The Millet Challenge

Pipestone Flyer

 

Hear Ye, Hear Ye! A challenge is being issued! The Town of Millet is challenging all of their residents to fill the Lion's Club bus with food and balloons for the Millet Food Bank in time for the CPR Christmas Train concert.

The train will be in town on December 10th at 6:50 pm. with a stop in Millet for a concert by country band Doc Walker. The concert is free but in lieu of the cost of a ticket, donations to the Millet food bank is highly encouraged.

To get things kicked off and to help during what can be a very tough time of year for families that are already struggling, the Town of Millet has come up with a unique idea to gather donations for the food bank. Residents (or anyone else!) can purchase a balloon for $10.00, write their name on the balloon, and they will be blown up and stuffed into the bus on Dec. 10th, along with any non-perishable donations received. 

Balloons can be purchased at Millet Town Office, The Millet Liquor Store & More, and Millet Apple Drugs.
