The 7-10 Club is a POSITIVE aspect to our society that is a need unfortunately. Feeding negative thoughts and blame where they are not truely judgified is true ignorance. Those with negative thoughts need to get involved as this is part of your community and see what this is truly all about. People trying to help those in most need especially the next generation of kids that need a chance in life. Life hands us lemons from time to time but remember some get more lemons than others through no fault of their own. To associate that feeding the hungry enhances the drug world is somewhat a lame idea of thinking.
When the church decided to let go of its support in this field, I lost somewhat some faith in what their true purpose in society is other than preaching the goodwill of god.!!!
JUST HAD TO GET THAT OUT IN THE AIR. THESE IS MY THOUGHTS!
I agree all music, Feeding the hungry is an extremely historical and necassary task in any society. Those with christian values should show this as a priority, and those who are merely human too must take care of those who cant for whatever reason feed themselves. Even the condemned on death row are fed.
New Home for 7-10 club approved!
Daily News -New home for 7-10 club approved by city council
Good to see the hard work of many citizens to bring this to fruition. The club operates to help those in need, mainly in the downtown area. This new fixed address and plans for a new industrial kitchen will be a huge bonus for those involved. Glad to hear residents in the neighbourhood haven't seen any problems lately, and some were not aware it was in their backyard.
Nanaimo appreciates the work community activists such as Gordon Fuller does on a continual basis. CONGRATS!

i had a house on Kennedy Street for many years. It was built in 1912. i loved that house sooo much. Unfortunately some yahoos one Christmas lit my porch on fire and I lost everything. The contractor who did the restore work just boarded up all the burned wood and Icouldnt even sell it!
i also lived on the corner of Albert and Prideaux Street. Another beautiful old house.i had a big dog when I lived in those areas and nobody bothered me except , bylaws , police and the Port Authority.
Good people are good people no matter where you live.

ya' TH2008....you got that right...I only wish that the BC gov't would stop advertising that we do live in the best place on earth.....seems when you tell everybody stuff like that, all they want to do is come and rape the land (clear-cut, burn and then pave it all) instead of perserving it....this is a great discussion subject on this forum for sure......cheers!......stan the man
