Welfare League launches campaign

Boone County — Members of the Lebanon Welfare League are celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Christmas food basket program that originated in 1937.

“We are looking forward to this service once again this year,” said  Sue Ellen Muncie, chairwoman of the event. “Each year seems to get harder with the economy going up and down.”

Since 1962, when founder Harry Jones retired, the Kappa Delta Phi sorority has coordinated the project. Last year the sorority’s 24 members organized financial and food item donations into Christmas Day meals for more than 490 people, Muncie said.
