Gleaners society is a good thing for Creston Valley

To the Editor:

(Re: “Creston Valley Gleaners Society should return to happy, friendly place”, Aug. 13)

When the Gleaners started, the volunteers would run it having a vote and a say how things were done. The Aug. 13 letter to the editor leads one to think that things are not running so smoothly. I understand that the mandate was for the volunteers to run this organization.

It would appear from the letter that someone is trying to take over the Gleaners and Food Bank for their own personal ideas and use. How sad that this organization has run into a roadblock, getting rid of all the old volunteers and then putting a sign out looking for new people! Sounds like they are looking for “yes” people.

The powers to be need to have a good look at this situation and correct it. If we lose Gleaners it will be a sad day for Creston.
