HOUSE NEWS: Sept. 1 – 6
Things got off to a nice start last week. The “New” Dorothy’s Cafe served lentil stew, deviled eggs, challah bread, muscadines, and iced tea to about 60 folks over the six hours we were serving – a nice, relaxed crowd that allowed for plenty of socializing and greeting old friends. Friday’s Breakfast Brigade welcomed back some old regulars as well as some new folks. It was good to be back!
We’re anticipating needing volunteers for WEDNESDAY’S (changed from Tuesdays) Breakfast Brigade. And we would love to see you at the Cafes as well. Busy times last week were between 9:30 – noon for preparation, noon till 2 serving, and again from 5-6. That may change, but if you can donate an hour or two, it would be great if you could shoot for those time frames.
For folks who can’t volunteer during the week, we will be having monthly parties celebrating holidays and special house days. Our first one will be in honor of the fourth anniversary of Jubilee House – on Sunday, October 5. We’ll need folks to help make food, serve, clean up, and party with us. Let us know if you can help or if you have a group that would like to adopt that date. Upcoming parties include All Saints/All Souls/Day of the Dead on Sunday, November 2, and St. Nicholas Day on Saturday, December 6.
We’re also looking forward to starting a children’s garden at Rosa B. Williams Center for the kids there after school. And we may be starting new gardens around the neighborhood as well. We’ll let you know when the gardening-making begins.
And, finally, the Roundtable and Potluck picks up again on Thursday this week. This week, we’ll welcome back old friends and introduce Patrick and Iris (Metanoia participants) and Moraa to those who haven’t met them yet. Bring some food to share if you can; if you can’t, come anyway.
Check out this week’s schedule for all the details. We are looking forward to seeing you!
