On Sunday, Dec. 16, community members gathered at Trinity Lutheran Church to finish the Christmas Boxes Project, in which food was collected and given to needy people in the community. Thirty volunteers helped to fill 92 boxes with food and distribute them around Vermillion. Besides members of the community, the effort was supported by the Vermillion Lions Club, Clay County Thrivent Board, Civic Council, Vermillion Rotary Club, Jolley and Austin schools. This marks the 33rd year this annual event has taken place.
