Inquiring Minds Want to know ... What you thought about the Thanksgiving Outreach

There were a lot of folks that came out to The Commonplace today.  We packed up about 375 boxes filled with turkeys, potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, green beans, stuffing, bread, desert ... all the fixin's.  If you were there would you write a brief comment or story about your experience.  Inquiring minds want to know!

Comment from Steven McKinnon:
Today was the culmination of lots of work and fun over the past few months working with Commonplace and all the great volunteers.  We were up at 6am headed over to Keith's place to assist in the organization of the delivery details.  Plenty of excitement as we got to work with all the delivery teams this year.  Last year, our first year to participate, we mostly sorted and packed food.  This year we got to meet all the delivery folks.  It was great and the feedback we got was that it just gets better every year.  It was great seeing friends, co-workers, neighbors, and all of our church members out helping today.  God is good and who needs any more proof then our day today.  Way to go Keith and Deb - keep up the great work.
