In just the past few weeks, the Ogilvie Food Shelf Board has lost two of its members, Ken Taylor on Aug. 26, 2020 and Arylis Munsterteiger on Sept. 16, 2020, and their presence is truly missed.
Ken Taylor was the City of Ogilvie representative on the Ogilvie Food Shelf Board. On Oct. 10 the Ogilvie Food Shelf was presented with a $2000 donation from the Ogilvie Lions Club in memory of Kenny Taylor. Ken served on the board sharing information needed for making decisions for the best service for the people of the Ogilvie area, and he was the contact person with the Ogilvie Lions Club to share information and needs of the Ogilvie Food Shelf with them.
Arylis Munsterteiger represented St. Kathryn’s Catholic Church on the Ogilvie Food Shelf Board. Arylis has served on the food shelf board for many years and has also given hours and hours of volunteer work for the Ogilvie Food Shelf. In the past several years, she established a library just outside the food shelf where people can freely borrow books to read and return for others to read.
Arylis was always prepared for the board meetings and often brought valuable questions for the board to consider. Many donations have been made to the Ogilvie Food Shelf in memory of Arylis, too.
The Ogilvie Food Shelf has been lucky to have these two people serving for the good of the food shelf and the community. The Ogilvie Food Shelf is open for distribution on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month from 8-10:30 a.m.
