All taken place at the Brewster Baptist Church . We had close to 30 people to feed. It was a great feeling to see how greatfull many of the people showed.
We made our deliveries to the Kent Elementary and Patterson Elementary 3rd grade classes. The youngsters were all excited to receive them. Look at those smiles. The last group got all excited about learning sign language at the end of the books.
It was terrific to have our long time member Bill Nichols have a fantastic talk and then celebrated his 90th birthday.
