An unexpected snow of 6-8 inches may have dampened some plans, but nothing gets in the way of Team 2! All team members who were expected, showed up with high spirits and even one volunteer drove from S.C. to help us greet our guests. We donned our crazy Christmas headbands and served our traditional menu of pinto beans and ham, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, slaw, and cornbread, topped off with ice cream sundaes and Christmas cookies for dessert. Fifty guests braved the snow and cold and loving our menu, they took 44 plates with them!
We were unable to offer the clothes closet, but as guests left, the CARE Committee provided a $5 gift card to the Yokefellow thrift store to help with their Christmas shopping. Another plus was following Hibriten's state championship game with the radio. Periodically, we would hold the Christmas music to shout out the score of the game. By 5:00, the guests had left and most of Team 2 was huddled around the radio pulling Hibriten through with a nail-biting 16-14 win.
