The Jasonville United Methodist Church recently entered a float in the Jasonville/Shakamak Homecoming Parade on Sept. 25. The parade theme was ‘Seuss on the Loose.’ The intent of the float was to raise awareness of the Back Door Food Pantry the church sponsors, and to collect non-perishable food items and monetary donations. For their efforts, more than 215 pounds of food was collected and almost $600 in cash donations. Not bad for their first time of collecting along a parade route. Back Door Food Pantry has been operating for a little more than a year and serves approximately 50 families a month or 250 people. Riding on the float is Jasonville UMC Pastor Carl Leth. Others assisting either on the float, collecting food or pulling the float were Bill and Karen Gaskins, Jim and Marilyn Flanders, Francie Barton, Lauri, Bob and Pam Chattin with granddaughters Alexis, Halle and Jolee Brunson. In the words of Dr. Seuss “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
