Gumbo and his 2.0s (Redbird and Snare), a Redibrd classmate, EF Hutton and Hardywod had the great privilege of breaking bread tonight with 8 great folks tonight at The Daily Planet’s Medical Respite Center. Following in the footsteps of his father, YHC ordered up WAY too much food, but its all good as we left and entire pan of baked spaghetti and meat sauce (probably 3-4 pounds) for the residents to enjoy for another meal.
We enjoyed some great fellowship and conversation with the residents and I hope brought a few smiles to their faces. These are some great folks, and I would highly encourage any of you who have not had an opportunity to make time volunteer for a Breaking Bread. It is a small sacrifice of your time and I promise you will get so much more out of it in return.
The residents are incredibly appreciative about the food and the fellowship – probably more excited about the fellowship honestly. They truly need our help as the weekend volunteer who was there was telling us that groups sign up to bring meals and then don’t show. I applaud this group for committing to things (serious or stupid) and following through. My father-in-law always says 75% of success is just showing up. Well, F3 shows up and brings it baby…Always! So proud to be a part of this group.
See you men in the gloom!
No more Gumbo for you!
