A celebration was held at the First Parish Church on February 2nd to thank Sue Rowe for her many years of service to what is now the Yarmouth Community Food Pantry.
Sue will soon step down from her managing role, and a team of volunteers is in the process of being assembled to take on the many roles she has so ably filled.
Over $1,500 worth of food was donated to the Food Pantry in her honor, and the following plaque will be hung on the wall of the Yarmouth Community Food Pantry.
