Thanks to all who came, shared, cooked, and cleaned up! Special thanks to Scot who managed to do EVERYTHING with a child in his arms. Now that's attachment parenting! Thanks to Jason, and Matt who set up the grill; to Barry, Linda, Jeffrey, and Amela who organized the food, and to Jim who supervised clean up. The sausages from Bessery's were fabulous as usual, Dave supplied the hot dogs (cooked to crispy perfection), rolls, and soda, and Hannafords invited us to come last minute and pick up whatever we needed -- condiments, chips, cheese, and ice!
The warm feeling of neighborhood and community is why we do it. The local business donors, our elected officials at the grill, worthy candidates, friends from other NPAs in the city, neighbors arriving with summer salads -- all at table together in the Robert Miller Community Room. Namaste. (Hey, that's the new market on the Avenue!)
