Glad we can do it.

Upper Deerfield Twp,  NJ

First, I have neglected to welcome Sharon Wallace as a reader of this blog.  So good to see you here, Sharon.

The last two days have been full of activity.  We were asked two Sunday's ago if we would cook and serve meals at our church for a group of young men who reside at Ranch Hope for Boys a residence facility not far from here.     We agreed to do this as we have done before when in the area.  

We made several trips to the grocery store as it had turkey's on sale for $.99 a pound provided you purchased $25.00 in other groceries.  The catch - only one turkey at a time.  So three trips.

Yesterday two church members helped for a couple of hours with some of the prep work as did our Pastor.

One of our members who is a retired school teacher decorates our social hall for every season or holiday.

Thankfully my daughter, son-in-law, and grandson were agreeable to helping us this morning before leaving right after serving time for their dinner at her Father's house.   At serving time we were helped by two ladies from the church and the Pastor.  Must importantly they stayed to help clean up.     

Before the meal our Pastor did a short presentation and we all sang one song.  That's me at the piano. 

The guys and staff of the Ranch were so well behaved and appreciative of our efforts.   

We are full of not only good food but a satisfaction of serving others.

Hope that each of you had a blessed day in the company of your loved ones.
