I've got to say, for a charity event, that was one of the most fulfilling ones I have attended.
The group of volunteers we had were there to work as opposed to getting their name in Lights! Our people showed up despite record colds, rain and a really bad weather forecast. Dave and Deny Bart of Bart's Blazin Q took control of us and made this event happen.
The Army was very organized despite our inability to get information very quickly. When we got there they had a work detail to do whatever.
The event started exactly when they said it would and we were finished serving the last person about an hour later. Awesome for 300 people.
The Army families were polite, respectful and filled with gratitude for what we were doing. Really nice. I had people randomly walking up to me and thanking me.
I would love to do this again!
