"You're a godsend."

Gosh, tonight was so busy that I failed to take more than just a handful of pictures.  Here are two that I like, of new and happy customers.

Don't let the empty table in the top picture fool you.  The folks pictured came early and the place was hopping by the start of the meal.  By the way, the salad and tangy green bean dish were especially delicious.  And, aside from the great dinner, we had a TON of desserts to give away.

As she was leaving, one of our regular customers said, "You're a godsend."  Funny, but that is how I feel about our customers and our volunteers.  You are all wonderful.

Chocolate Snowmen

Though it's taken me a while to write, December's ET was terrific.  We had eggplant parmesan, cheesy broccoli, mashed potatoes, sauteed green beans, and more.  And the tables had been decorated by our ever-helpful teen volunteers with snowmen drawings covered with well-placed chocolates. To top off the evening, we had a lively Christmas sing-a-long. All that was missing was the snow. Maybe in January.  Hope you'll be there.

Three lovely servers.
Yummy table decoration.
