The summer lunch program for Cocalico School District students, Acts of Love, gained over $500 thanks to the annual Reamstown Days 5K Race, coordinated by Donna Reber.

Fifty-eight runners, including 88-year-old Paul Wissler of Lititz, the oldest runner, and his son, Steve, of Ephrata completed the course.

Overall female winner was Patti Weaver with a time of 22 minutes and 36 seconds. Overall male winner was James Snyder with a time of 20 minutes and 22 seconds.

The summer lunch program is sponsored by the Cocalico Area Ministerium, in conjunction with the Cocalico School District. Coordinator is The Rev. Joe Veres, Pastor of Faith United Lutheran Church, Denver.

Summer lunches were served three days each week at three sites: Denver Park, Reamstown Park and Reinholds Park.

Although the summer program has concluded, volunteers are needed throughout year. For those interested in helping the program, call Faith United Lutheran Church at 336-2141 or send an email to faithunited@dejazzd.com.
