Neighborhood House, Christmas Dinner

  • Neighborhood House, Christmas Dinner, Very cold night.

    Thursday Night, December 13, 2007. We met at school.

    We were a part of a team that feed about 800 people, kids and adults, a wonderful meal. We served plates of food, milk, drinks and ice cream to the family guests. We worked with a very nice team from the St. Paul Optimist Club, Neighborhood House staff, St. Paul Parks staff and more. We wore our blue Friendship Club shirts courtesy of Ecolab. We looked very nice. Thank you Kris & Shannon.

    No small act of kindness is ever wasted. No man is an island, we are all connected to each other. We share, We care. We Serve, We Learn. Today's Students, Tomorrows Leaders. Great kids doing great things. We donated about 60 hours of service to our friends at Neighborhood House.

    "Your kids were awesome. They were helpful, cheerful and positive the entire night." Stated by an Optimist Member.
