Food of God decided to revamp their presentation of Plymouth council dinners. On the second Tuesday of every month (except August) FOG plans and prepares a hot meal for all the council members. This year FOG decided to add more “flavor” to the menus and spice it up with catchy themes. It has been a challenging and fun adventure. FOG started the church year with “currying flavors” in November and in December served winter soups and salad. January highlighted a “boar’s feast” and February a Valentine’s pasta. March will bring an Irish stew and April a meal all about lemons!
items. In addition FOG gave to every guest a small but nicely presented Easter bag. Candies and small children’s toys were gift wrapped and decorated with ribbons and Easter chickens! New books were donated by A Great Place for Good Books in Montclair (Oakland). Many of our adults were delighted to have a new book to take away!
After a summer break, FOG volunteers gathered for a pot luck supper in late September to kickoff the new year. Almost all of our volunteers attended. We decorated the Fireside Room with FOG decor and colors: red and white gingham tablecloths and napkins lent a festive air. Our director introduced the officers and addressed each volunteer individually thanking them for all their support and effort during the past year. New volunteers were introduced.
Team Captains were commended for all the work they had done all year in organizing and preparing our meal every week. Plans were outlined for the coming year and the major events FOG had scheduled were presented. Mixing a bit of business with lots of fun, all the volunteers were made to feel welcomed and appreciated. Our treasurer made a plea for donations and a substantial amount was collected. It was a wonderful evening, full of hope and gratitude. We hope this potluck dinner in September will become an annual event!
