Good Afternoon:


A Big Shout Out to all of the above who did a great job Wednesday afternoon and evening at the Annual Block Party!!!

Hope I did not forget anyone!!


From 2:00pm- 8:00pm, the slicers, dicers, washers and stirrers, cooks and packers, servers and cleaners, gathered to set up grills and tables to serve the lines.  Between 5:00pm and 7:00pm, they served up 500 meals consisting of turkey burgers, rolls, tomatoes, lettuce, cole slaw, baked beans, chips.  We had one tray of tomatoes left (now being made into tomato sauce) two containers of coleslaw, one pot of baked beans- all of which LISTEN can use for community meals(And here we want to thank Kyle and Theresa from LISTEN - Kyle made all the cole slaw and Theresa was a big help in making sure food was moved from kitchen to serving; washing dishes and, generally, just being there.  Many thanks to them)


And, many thanks to Jan Rostron for bringing those slicing knives and serving up those tomatoes.  Also, we

certainly appreciated Joe's wife who joined the servers to make sure folks filled their water bottles correctly.

So, all in all, there were about 14 (fourteen) who pitched in and did a great job in making this event one of Rotary's finest gifts to the community - certainly 'Service Above Self'.


Rotary President Rich was not able to join us but he did a lot of moving and shopping and communicating.  Both Scott Hausler and Emily Zaneloni (event committee chair) always work, diligently, to make this event bigger and better every year - thanks to them as well.  True Community Spirit!!
