What a pleasure it was tonight to plan a difficult entrée, knowing that we would have a terrific group of volunteers putting it together. Here are some photos from the meal. We had so much help serving, that I stood back and helped out with vegetarian meals, and offered people who were cleaning up a meal. We served about 65 guests and another 10 staff members tonight. The meal was really good. -Bruce
Lex Eat Together has just turned one!
Many many thanks to our dedicated volunteers who have made every Wednesday such a success and so very special.
We could not have done it without your joyful enthusiasm.
Tonight was extra special: our regular Chinese guests wanted to thank the staff and volunteers of LET for our efforts. One guest played “You Are My Sunshine” on his accordion and everyone sang along. Each volunteer was then presented with little gifts.
It was a very nice, thoughtful gesture.
There were few leftovers at the end of the night, which were scraped into a covered bin for delivery to the pigs at Chip-In Farm.
New cloth hats came in and were worn for the first time tonight by kitchen staff. They will be washed each week with the aprons.
One of our upcoming projects in the works for next year is a cross-generational, cross-cultural cooking collaboration between some of our senior guests and seniors from LHS who are learning Mandarin. Stay tuned – more details to follow!
If you haven't done so yet, please use the SignUp Genius link to volunteer for early next year.
