    What really mattered was the fellowship with the homeless man at our table and the young father with his 10 year old daughter who was delighted with her box for girls that had the simplest items. When she was offered a clementine, she began to slowly peel it and her father quietly said to her, save it for later. There were opportunities to tell them about free healthcare at the CrossOver Ministries, also. It seemed that more important than the food was the chance to talk with others.

    Leona, I have a family of 5 already invited as guest to our tables already, I believe there should be additional room between our two tables, if there is then by all means, do come and join us! I am at either table 35 or 36. If not a volunteer but are arriving as our guests then doors open at 11am for seating, and you can ask to bypass the line and let them know what table you are with a that you are a guest of mine. I hope this helps everyone... Tam & others - would it be to much to ask what table you will be hosting? I would love to finally meet everyone! :-) Happy Holidays everyone,

    Jennie

    I signed up to Host a table along with my Husband, and Mother-in-Law and her husband. I also went ahead and also Sponsored a Table as well. Do you know if we are going to meetup and group together first before this? They say everyone will need to be upstairs before the doors open? Anyone know more about that?

    I did not have an opportunity to register my son and I in time. I called the number and was told to obtain the group table number so that we can at least hang out and help with the clean-up please. Please send table number at earliest convenience.

    Thank you.

    The Giving Heart sent out a few "helpful hints" for those voluneering online:
    •When sending your application form, you will get a page that comes up to acknowledge your form being sent. If you do not see that message, your application was not sent and you need to redo your submission.
    •Official confirmation emails are usually very quick to go out. It is your responsibility to call us at[masked] if you don't receive the confirmation. The acknowledgement form that appears after your application is submitted is NOT a confirmation.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
