The annual Labor Day picnic and food drive sponsored by the Southwestern Wyoming Central Labor Council (SWCLC) was well attended and resulted in quite a haul for the Food Bank of Sweetwater County. People who attended the picnic were asked to bring items to donate to the food bank.

Donations are important at this time of year as some young families struggle with the costs associated with the start of the school year. Food Bank officials said that, while many think to donate around the holidays, this time of year is usually low on donations at a time when people are in need.

SWCLC President Monte Morlock said “The Wyoming weather cooperated with us as it usually does on Labor Day. We had a good turnout for the picnic and I would like to thank everyone for attending and bringing items for the food bank. They were very generous as usual. I would also like to thank everyone for all the great conversation and friendship.”
