September 20, 2023: We celebrate working together at Sam Jones
But first an announcement: We will not be meeting early this Sunday for a Community Meeting. Because several of our Committee Board Members are traveling we will wait until late October to meet as a full community.
We will meet as usual for our Sunday Celebration at 3:45 this Sunday
Yesterday afternoon Denise Dixon led us back to Sam Jones for in-person work for the first time in a very long time. We provided a meal of pasta with chicken and sun dried tomatoes with lots of Parmesan cheese on top, lovely roasted broccoli, mixed salad with bleu cheese dressing and brownies, cookies, blondies and gluten free cake for dessert. We are so thankful for everyone who contributed desserts, salad and time. We made it happen!
Busy kitchen at Sam Jones: Denise Dixon (foreground) Pat O'Connor, Marcie Dahlen, Dan Lambert in back washing pots and pans, Nadine Condon and Eva at the sink and Dan Vrooman cutting brownies.
Our fearless leader Denise Dixon explains the timing of the meal. Denise inspired our work, got us organized and kept the whole enterprise together. Wonderful leadership!
Note the amazing desserts in the forerground...
