“It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads, which sew people together through the years.” ~ Simone Signoret
I’ve held an ill-conceived notion about community dinners until I began volunteering about 3-4 years ago in my town of residence. Contrary to my belief, people of all ages and all economic walks of life attend for fellowship and neighborly bonding more than anything. And in a place where winter is long and isolating for some people, its even more needed and appreciated.
I like making time to help out, and many hands make light work. We volunteers work well together, each doing the parts we enjoy. Some cook, some serve, some set-up and others clean-up. Others a lend financial hand. We join in however we can to make the best contribution.
I look forward to the start of these weekly meet-ups at the United Methodist Church over dinner. Time to get out the apron!
