Ridge View Builders Club presents ‘Coins for the Closet’

    DEXTER — Each year, the Ridge View Community School Builders Club collects “Coins for the Closet” in an effort to help feed needy people in our community. This year, the club presented a check for $1,000 to the Dexter Area Food Closet. Food closet representative Dick Gilbert accepted the donation saying, “at nineteen cents a pound, this donation will buy a lot of food.”
