Volunteers from local churches and the community at large hosted this year’s event. No one was paid! We were thrilled to receive substantial donations from both the Rescue Lodge of Masons as well as Champlain National Bank and many kind spirited locals. These funds helped us to purchase many of the incidentals. Our gratitude goes to many additional members of the Crown Point area who joined with us to make this a true community time of fellowship.
This was a total community effort that brought together people and resources to ensure true fellowship and a traditional hot meal for those who might not have one, here in Crown Point. We served approximately 125 meals, both in-house and delivered to those who were unable to join us.
It is my prayer that as the months go by, this meal will serve as a point of pride and accomplishment for not only our community but for others who will look for ways to share in the ability to build a stronger, caring community. “Together,” what a wonderful way to share. I am proud to be part of this true expression of community!
Thank you to all!
