Common GoodHelp Serve
Common Good , which is a part of Embrace, has asked us to help with the Thursday summer program meals.  This is a six week summer program and runs from June 6 to July 14.  Tom Eblen  is the point of contact and can help with most Thursdays but will be out June 9 and July 14.  Please check your calendars and see if those Thursdays are available.  If enough of us can help, it would be three sessions or less for each of us. The time frame will be from 11:30 to 1:30.
ALL of the students gather at 12:30 to eat lunch  together.  It’s our understanding we will be serving chicken breasts, mac and cheese, etc.
