Rosenbaum Family House Dinner
We had an excellent turnout for our service project at the Rosenbaum Family House. We had enough cooks to keep the kitchens going and enough volunteers to visit with patients and family members. We had an excellent meal and a heartwarming evening. Perfect for the Thanksgiving season. Thanks group.

Backpack Feeding Program
Our volunteer group is growing. We had our biggest group ever at Scott’s Run on Wednesday. We got all the bags packed and were in and out in our fastest time yet. If you’d like to know more about the program, see Backpack Feeding Program.

Salome at the Benedum
We traveled to Pittsburgh on Sunday to see the opera Salome at the Benedum Center. We started with an opera talk on the bus. Byron Nelson did a great job letting us know what to expect. The opera performance was exactly as he described and he didn’t spoil the ending at all. The staff at the Pittsburgh Opera treated us really well. Byron summed up the opera on our way home. It was a pleasant bus ride and we got to see spectacular views of the supermoon. The group consensus was that it was a wonderful trip.
