No elementary Christmas program

Venison Project lets hunters donate deer
GLADSTONE — Hunters who do not want to keep their meat can donate it to help feed hungry people this year as part of the annual Venison Project.
If you wish to donate a deer, you can field dress it and take it to Steve Soderman’s Meat Processing on Days River Road in Brampton or to Viau’s Market in Escanaba. If the deer is skinned, you can take it to Garden Mini Mart. All three places — Steve Soderman’s, Viau’s, and Garden Mini Mart — will process the meat for free, so there is no cost to the hunter. Just be sure to mention the meat is for the Memorial United Methodist Church Venison Project
The meat is given to food pantries in Escanaba and Gladstone. Questions may be directed to Memorial United Methodist Church at 428-9311.
