    I sometimes feel selfish about these events because the experience is so very rewarding.

    A few of my friends are dropping off food donations to me today-I know there is flour, chicken, broccoli and butter but don't know the quantities. I will sign up to bring all the peas, milk and biscuits.

  • Beatrice C.

    I am asking my local friends for food donations and will update as soon as I hear. I will also be making a few goody bags for any dogs. It will just include a few baggies of dog food and some dog treats. I can only make it to the cooking portion--the menu sounds perfect!!!

      August 27

    • Damo

    Sorry I can't make it. Between going on my first Red Cross deployment (to Napa), organizing a dance flashmob the following week, and a fencing birthday party for our former maestro at his nursing home, I'm totally overbooked.

    August 26

    • Damo

      It is okay. What is dance flashmob? It sounds fun.

      August 26

  • Beatrice C.

    I don't think I can make it for the full day. Will you need more help with preparing or with distributing the food?

    1 · August 26

    • Damo

      Yes, preparing food is from 12 to 2 and distributing food is from 3 to 5. You can come to either one. Judy made a very nice menu I will post later evening. If you can donate some of ingredients will be appreciated.
