You’ve all heard the Air Force’s ultra-high-security, super-secret base in Nevada, known simply as “Area 51?” Well, late one afternoon, the Air Force folks out at Area 51 were very surprised to see a Cessna landing at their “secret” base. They immediately impounded the aircraft and hauled the pilot into an interrogation room. The pilot’s story was that he took off from Vegas, got lost, and spotted the Base just as he was about to run out of fuel. The Air Force started a full FBI background check on the pilot and held him overnight during the investigation.

By the next day, they were finally convinced that the pilot really was lost and wasn't a spy. They gassed up his airplane, gave him a terrifying “you-didn't-see-a-thing” briefing, complete with threats of spending the rest of his life in prison, told him Vegas was that-a-way and sent him on his way. The next day, to the total disbelief of the Air Force, the same Cessna showed up again. Once again, the MP’s surrounded the plane … only this time there were two people in the plane. The same pilot jumped out and said, “Do anything you want to me, but my wife is in the plane and you have to tell her where I was last night.” Vacation Bible School Come for a week of lively songs, bible stories, crafts, games & tasty snacks!

The Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society is requesting funding which would assist us in purchasing and renovating our own building. We are unable to provide an exact amount of needed funding at this time since we do not know which building we will actually get, if it will need renovation, nor if we will have to build a new building instead of purchasing an existing one. However, we would like to raise $160,000 for the building fund this year. Our costs of raising these funds will be about $3500. The Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society is currently located at 115-2nd Ave. N. in Vulcan, which is also where we are incorporated in Alberta, or we may be reached by mail at Box 594, Vulcan, AB T0L 2B0. For further information, please call the Executive Director, Carrol 403 485 2192.
