From Captain Fern Heinig:
On a cold January night, with actual snow flakes, the Shomrei MESH cafe opened their doors and welcomed 29 guests, which included 6 young guests (ages 2-9) and their parents.
Teens Lewis and his friend Max and adult Susan Anderson joined Captain/Cook Fern in the preparation of a hearty meal for a cold night. Teen Amalia and MESH staffer, Adrienne, took charge of setting the table and preparing the drinks for our guests.
Matt volunteered for the first time helping to serve and clean up. Rachel, a veteran, joined her brother and rounded our evening staff.
Report from Captain Lynne Kurzweil:
A lovely evening at Shomrei’s MESH Cafe. Guests arrived with smiles and anticipation of a good meal.
They enjoyed Pumpkin Black Bean Soup, courtesy of our soup maven, Merrill Silver. Spinach Cheese Lasagne and Tossed Salad with Ripe Tomato Wedges was next, accompanied by Garlic Bread. Dessert was Brownie Sundaes with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. Yours truly was the cook with help from Susan Anderson, Sierra Wendeborn, and Shomrei teens Sam, Sebastian, Rachel. Every bite was gone and many guests left with equally bright smiles.
