Last Saturday we had a Successful Al-Anon Day of Sharing. We were a packed house with a lot of happy people! In fact every group in our District was represented ... it was great. That is because we started the day with a Pancake Breakfast that was out of this world. Thanks to Karen M, Michael D. and Mary Jean. We thought we were eating pancakes and bacon... instead we had french toast, scrambled eggs toast oatmeal, cereal and fruit in addition to the pancakes and bacon. It was so good we started half an hour late to let the stragglers enjoy the food. Not only was the kitchen was spotless...lunch was set up for the afternoon. A big thanks to Karen for organizing the meals. Louise T. , Eden, and Mike R. delivered very thought talks as well as the people who thanked them. Carol H., Albert G. and Sylvie M. The biggest thrill of the day was when Chrissy from Canton who won the gift Card Raffle. While many of us were buying 5.00 worth of tickets. Chrissy bought the last one and only one. I think HP wanted her to win the prize!! Delma W. helped set out the food for lunch and Delma W. Char B. and Sue L cleaned up the kitchen .We ended on time and people just hung around for a while... then the card game broke out when Gaetan R. walked through the doors. A big Thank-you to Charlie C. who took home 6 bags of garbage for us.
The Next day we had Taco Sunday after the 1pm AA Meeting. Thanks to Darlene. We also had pea soup and grilled cheese sandwiches thanks to Delma W. Char told Willie we were eating Spaghetti so he made his famous salad and brought the spaghetti. Imagine his surprise to learn it was a Taco Dinner. The salad was still god Willie and as usual gone in a flash.We celebrated Ice Cream Steve A. 19th Anniversary and Carol H.'s 9th. We had four flavors of Ice cream , two cakes , two pies, and cookies for dessert. It was a smaller crowd but there was still had a card game. We left before the Veterans Mtg but heard John S. cooked up some eggs and bacon for dinner and enjoyed a little cake too . We gave him the pumpkins for his animals so if you need a place to dispose of your pumpkins... consider calling John S. Big thanks to Bruce M who cleaned up the kitchen
