Grantfork news, April 17 edition

The Village of Grantfork requires solicitors to get a permit before going around the village and peddling their products. Please report anyone who is doing this and tell them to stop by the Village Hall before they bother anyone else.

Highland Food Pantry

To meet the needs of the Highland Food Pantry, a new system has been created.

We are asking parishioners to donate tubes of toothpaste.

To ensure we have enough product to serve all our clients, 35-50 of any given item is needed on the menu so no one is slighted. The requested item may change month to month.

All Food donations will still gladly be accepted and needed.
