Gold Country Welcome Club co-presidents Bob Barbaro and Ron Barker presented a check for $550 to the Interfaith Food Ministry last week. Funds were raised for the ministry at the silent auction at the club’s annual Christmas party. Lorraine Larson and Virginia Herron, third vice presidents of the Welcome Club board, were instrumental in making the auction a success.

“Our club feels a responsibility to helping others in this community we all live in. We take pride in giving back, helping people whenever we can. Besides this holiday gift, we give $1,000 a year from our members to three different local nonprofits each year,” Barbaro said.

Interfaith Food Ministry has been serving the hungry in western Nevada County for more than 25 years. In years past, it provided more than 91,000 grocery bags of nutritional food. A remarkable 97 percent of the donations go directly to its food program. Once again, Christmas grocery bags will be delivered to the needy Dec. 18, 20 and 23.



The Welcome Club’s Christmas party Dec. 4 took place at the Alta Sierra Country Club. Gold Country Welcome Club is a nonprofit social club of almost 700 members. With more than 20 activity groups, members meet folks with common interests. From hiking to bridge, book clubs to travel, there is a group for everyone. Membership is open to all residents in the Western Nevada County area. Check them out at http://ncnugget.com.
