District Governor Scott Leckman encouraged and inspired Salt Lake Rotarians at a recent club meeting. His message: we can do good for others and follow the Rotary theme; Be The Inspiration. 
Rotarian Teri Jensen teamed up with her UPB colleagues Steve Keyser,
Lindsey Welker, Thomas Welker, Corrinne Horton, Rhonda Day, Jay McMillan,
and Lacey Poulsen for our club's monthly dinner service.  This time we
were invited provide and prepare a fancy dinner for the VOA Homeless Youth
Resource Center's Prom.  We served a full roast beef dinner with all the
fixings.  We also offered vegetarian dishes, salad and chilled shrimp
appetizers. A group of young attorneys and judges waited tables.  Another
non-profit group provided formal wear, make overs, and a photo booth.
This was an exceptional night.  I've never seen this group of young adults
have so much fun.

Rotarian's provide, prepare and serve dinner at the center on the second
Wednesday of every month.  If you would like to volunteer, contact Teri
Jensen at tjensen@upbslc.com.  We are looking for a few additional members
for the Youth Service Committee.  If serving young people in our community
is one of your passions, please contact Teri.  
About 50 homeless teens were served dinner on September 12 at the Volunteers of America Teen Shelter.  The teens, from across the country but now living in Utah, were most appreciative.  Honey-baked hams, potatoes au gratin, broccoli, green salad, milk and cookies were the fare of the day.  They seemed to love it because most came back for more...especially the potatoes.  
Those who served were Steve and Deb Whipple, Ray and Anne Price, Rich and Sylvia Mucha, Morris Linton, Rich and Teresa McIntosh, and Steve and Liz Warner.  A fabulous time was had by all.  The kitchen is so well equipped that it is a pleasure to serve meals at the VOA facility.
The young people were polite and freely expressed gratitude for the meal.  One young man yelled 'God Bless You Volunteers' as he waved goodbye.
