Thanksgiving meal


Two thirty pound turkeys, two hams, all the trimmings and dessert. Yep, we are having our Thanksgiving dinner for our friends in the park today. The sun is shinning….it’s going to be a beautiful day to share a meal with our friends.


10 Years


What a wonderful and beautiful day in the park. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day to celebrate 10 years of service to our friends in the park. Yes, 10 years. It seems like just yesterday I was handing out my first sandwich to the first gentleman. He went by the name of Marlboro and had a little dog named scamp. Ten years later and we are serving over a hundred. I want to thank each and every person who has given of themselves to come down and serve long side myself, I also want to say thank you to all that have donated over the years, if it were not for each and every one of you….we would not be celebrating ten years.

Thank you to those who came down today and helped serve and thank you Tim from for loaning us your grill so we could cook up a special meal for our folks. Jeremiah rocked it on the grill…making over a hundred quesadillas and for bringing his grandpa Bill (loving having him around) . Liz (Tim’s aunt), Jerry and Preacher thanks for all you did serving our folks.  Thanks also goes out to my son James and his wife Brie for all they did helping me prepare for today’s meal. I love and appreciate each and everyone of you. Below you will find a link to a video of today and some photos. Once again thank you for making the last ten years amazing!!!

Help needed to keep the kids warm


At the park, we have some of the cutest young kids. This past Sunday the weather had turned cooler and I was concerned about the kids being warm and what they had available to help with staying warm with up coming colder weather. After talking to some of the parents, I found that they have been able to supply some of their winter needs for their children, but there are some that are still needed. I am reaching out to anyone who might be able to help with these needs.  We have some little girls who are in need of warm clothing in the size 2T, 5 or 6 and size 7 to 8. We also have a few little boys ranging in age from about 6 to 10. They also could use gloves, beanies and socks. If you can help in anyway, please let me know. Many are school age kids and going to school with proper clothing to wear would be a blessing to them. Remember that when not in school these kids are having to spend their time on the streets or in a car. They don’t always have a warm place to get out of the cold and having warm items to wear can really make their day a little more bearable. Thank you for your help.

Easter Sunday

Easter is this coming Sunday and we will be celebrating with a big Easter dinner in the park. We have had large crowds of people (serving over a hundred this past weekend) and we are expecting another large crowd this week. If you would like to help, let me know.  Please join us if you have no place to go for Easter, we would love to have you. There will be egg coloring for the kids, as well as Easter baskets for them. We will be having a big Easter dinner, serving the following.
and lots of Desserts
We always have a great time, so please join us. We look forward to seeing you.

This coming Sunday in the park

I am headed to Florida today for  my brother’s funeral. He passed away this past Sunday. Anna will be coordinating the meal for this coming Sunday in the park. I don’t know if I will have internet access while at my mom’s. So if you have any questions about this coming Sunday’s meal, please contact Anna. Thank you and Love to you all.
