Lattice of Snacks & Hope

I woke up early at the Tilton Hollow Farms. I could tell the rain was rolling in so I packed up my tent and pack and waited for Luellen to show up and point in the direction for the day.

I enjoyed the scenery along the way and a brief stop in the historic cemetery in Perryton.

I arrived at the Perryton United Methodist Church in the afternoon and hung out while some of the ladies prepared for dinner. When 5:00 p.m. came people started rolling in for dinner. After dinner I had the opportunity to give a presentation and a time for a lot of questions concerning United Way and the issues that we will be addressing through our community blueprint.

The evening wrapped up around 8:00 and then the ladies cleaned up the kitchen. I could tell that they had definitely done this a time or two. They all worked together like a well oiled machine and before you know it the kitchen was right back in order. I am convinced that if we got enough church basement kitchen ladies together we could solve all of our hunger issues. Thanks Perryton United Methodist Church kitchen ladies!
