Thank you BSEC members for contributing such delicious food and volunteering for the Hope Dinner’s Thanksgiving dinner bags.
This was the 29th Hope Thanksgiving dinner and the 35 dinner bags were overstuffed with wonderful cooked food and baked goods.  You name it we had it.
Thank you Rita Wilson for the tasty lemon cakes
Paul Heymont for dozens of delectable home-baked cookies and breads.
Fiona Boneham for baking us scrumptious muffins
Tom’s donation that covered two pork shoulders and a super large tray of collard greens
Vandra Thorburn for her giant pans of yummy vegetarian homemade herb stuffing and for being our official greeter for the event.
Kim Brandon for granny apple bread pudding for other desserts
We also want to thank all those who offered to contribute and things didn’t line up – but will be ready for the December bags.  Thank you!
Thank you all so much for making this dinner so abundant.
The Hope Dinner was created by Janine Dietz, Donna Roberts, and others almost 30 years ago to help create community for people with HIV/AIDS.  Janine will be speaking at our December 10th Platform about lessons learned in this crisis that may help us with the current pandemic.
