Carla Kimmel has felt the struggle with the economy. Her family is doing better now, they've recently found employment, but last summer she found herself standing in food pantry lines. She couldn't believe she was there. One of the places where she received help was the Fish Choice Pantry in Greenville. She didn't want to be there, but was very grateful she had somewhere to go for help. She hasn't forgotten how grateful she felt then. This Christmas season she decided she wanted to give back. On December 9th there was a Christmas Dinner Benefit and Auction held with donations going to the Fish Choice Pantry. The party was hosted by Carla Kimmel & Kent Klosterman and held at the Eagles Lodge in Greenville, the Eagles donating the space. Food was provided by Carla and some friends. Classified, a classic rock band from the Greenville area performed with all proceeds from the band and the auction being donated. Members of the band include: Rob Fitzgerald, Robbie Jones and Larry Badger.
