The April 25 MCJC-sponsored PADS dinner fed 35 homeless guests and seven PADS volunteers.
The FOOD PROVIDERS for this dinner were: Gene Lindow (barbecue chicken), Leslie Cook (barley bean vegetable soup), Amy and Ben Llaneta (potato salad), Ellen Morton (green beans), Esther Kaplan (salad), Iza Celewicz (rolls), Kim Solomon Dooley (brownies), and Marian Weiss (chocolate cake, apple sauce raisin cake, and chocolate chip cookie squares).
The FOOD SERVERS for the April 25 dinner were: Amy and BJ Llaneta, Kim Solomon Dooley, Iza Celewicz, Briana and Elsa Salgado, Brian Silver, and Bruce Weiss.
The PADS dish washing volunteers failed to show up the night of April 25, so the following MCJC PADS dinner team members pitched in to help wash the dinner dishes: Kim Solomon Dooley, Iza Celewicz, Briana and Elsa Salgado, Brian Silver, and Bruce Weiss.
The April 25 MCJC-sponsored PADS dinner is the last PADS dinner for the 2017-2018 winter season. The MCJC-sponsored PADS dinners for the 2017-2018 winter season were an amazing success — and they were an amazing success because of the hard work all of you put into them.
I am MCJC’s representative to the Woodstock Area Community Ministries (WACM) which oversees the PADS dinner program. I know first hand how grateful WACM is for MCJC’s participation in this important community service program. MCJC has an outstanding reputation as a caring congregation among the members of WACM for its active involvement in community service projects.
Thank you to all who participated in the 2017-2018 season!
