Canadian Down Syndrome Awareness Week - Mmmmmmm...................

Tonight was our community's annual Fall Supper. It is a marvelous event!  There is a line up out the door of the community hall at the busy point of the evening. The turkey supper is a combined effort of most of the members of our community.  Everyone is asked to donate something, from carrots, to pickles, to salads to desserts.  Volunteers cook the turkeys, slice, mash, & warm the food & later clean up.  The Jr. high class from our school take shifts serving.

Besides a full belly, most wonderful thing is seeing all of the friends & neighbors that we may not have visited with in a while. It is a wonderfully warm & welcoming atmosphere.

I think K has been to too many of her older sisters volleyball matches lately though, because as we were leaving, she asked. " Can we go watch volleyball now?".
