ROCHELLE—To promote more giving, the men and the women of the Moose Lodge had a battle of the sexes for collecting items for the Rochelle Christian Food Pantry.

As to no surprise to the members, the ladies of the Moose beat the men, from three to one! A total of 400 food items were collected. Bobbie Colbert, of the food pantry, and Curtis Preston, of the Rochelle Moose, gathered and arranged some of the items in the pantry.

This is an annual holiday collection for the Rochelle Christian Food Pantry and is part of the Moose community service program.
