ANNUAL FLOUR AND SUGAR DISTRIBUTION 

VILLAGE OF YELLOW SPRINGS, OHIO

The Village of Yellow Springs Public Works Department crew will begin deliver y of flour and sugar to local widows and widowers on Tuesday, November 20 and should
complete deliveries by Wednesday, November 21, 2017. 

The annual distribution honors the bequest of Wheeling Gaunt, an ex-slave who donated farmland to the Village in 1894 with the stipulation its rental income be used to buy
flour each Christmas for the widows of Yellow Springs.

Though the land is now Gaunt Park, the Village has continued the tradition of distributing flour and sugar to widows. If you are a widow or widower in the community and you do NOT wish to receive the delivery, or you know of someone who should be added to the list, please call Ruthe Ann at the Village offices at 767-3402.

— Patti Bates, Village Manager
