For a few years now, Ron, the owner of Venice Eatery in Pitman, NJ, has been serving FREE Thanksgiving meals to those who need them. This year is no different and well...let the preparations begin!! We simply asked, "How can we help?" Well Ron said that last year there were only a few of them to prep and they worked til after 1 am. So we said we would come and help and bring along our friend Bernadette. There were about 10 of us, including some young girls who were there to cut the pies and cakes into pieces, ready to be served. Desiree, a wonder in herself, organizes the event and was working last night to get the delivery slips ready - see they are taking over 300 meals out to people as well!! Although we came home totally sore and tired and realized that a career in the restaurant business is NOT for us, we also felt gratified at the small part we could play to make this work for people. For this we are grateful and want to take a minute and wish everyone HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! We so value all of you in our lives!!
