Report from Captain Jill Hamburg Coplan:
MESH was wonderful. All can be proud of the warmth and delicious food that our 22 hungry neighbors received, instead of the usual 20.
Iron Chef John Lasiter, with Jerilyn Margulies, made more than enough for the extra guests, enough for seconds. Zero leftovers! Tossed salad & buttered challah appetizer, salmon fillets with mustard sauce guests called “the best salmon I’ve ever had,” sides of roasted rosemary potatoes and green beans, and dessert was a huuuuge birthday cake from Rachel Kanter and Andy Ely in honor of Pacey’s birthday, which — how lucky is this? — tonight Helene , one of the guests, turned 86. She looked joyful when a votive candle was lit & everyone sang the song.
Volunteer servers included Adrienne Lasiter, Shelly Levine, Eileen Goldmeier, and from MESH & Montclair State, Thalia and ‘Miss’ Bonnie , supervising and the ever-present junior Veronica.
