On November 11th, Rotarians served turkey, potatoes, green beans, pieand ice cream to the VOA youth. Rotarians estimated there were 50 meals
served. Large portions were provided to all participants as they went through the line. One recipient said, "This is the best gravy I've had in ten years, but don't tell my mom." Rotarians who participated where Mark McCashland, John Ashby, Ross Youngberg who were also supported by their wives. Others Rotarians who participated were Joshua Creer, Mike Gregory and two colleagues of Mark's - Lynn Erekson and Richard Hair who helped peel potatoes before they had to leave.

Mark also presented a check for $1,000 to Cathleen Sparrow, Chief Development Officer for VOA. She was appreciative and said these funds would be used to help keep the lights on and pay for the heat. Alexis Brown Brotherton also joined Cathleen during the check presentation.

Thanks for all those who planned and participated in this event. If you haven't participated in this activity yet, talk with Terri Jensen and find out when you can join other Rotarians in this fun event.
