People in a small town pull together
Once a month, breakfast is served in the Legion hall. For $5, you get all you can eat biscuits and REAL, FULL-OF-SAUSAGE gravy (I hate the fake gravy mixes served at most restaurants), eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, and other goodies. Today was the first time we have gone, and I was quite impressed. They could keep this up forever, because we are hooked. Once a month shouldn't add to our weight problem much, right? Girl Scouts are selling raffle tickets at $5 apiece, the proceeds from which also go into the roof fund.
Recently the cupboards at the local food pantry were bare. Folks got together and donated two pickup loads of grub to the cause. This Sunday the local churches are collecting more food to add to what was previously collected. Small towns do things like that.
