Spring is Coming

by John Aldrich

One of the sure indications that spring is upon us and the food runs are just around the corner is the arrival at the warehouse of the food order that will fill all the Rainbow food boxes to be delivered to the Elders. Roger Daly again oversaw the purchasing of this enormous order, and Boyd Mitchell drove the rental truck for the three trips it took to get everything from Walmart to the warehouse.

Here's the group of stalwarts that braved the chill on Saturday morning to get the job done.

In addition to Boyd's skill behind the wheel of the truck, he's also quite a pallet wrangler.

Long-time volunteer Dan Willis seems to have an uncanny ability to show up when he's needed the most.

We were also honored to have this brother-sister team of Hilary and Sterling join us.

Besides helping with stacking the food, Hilary was able to get some work done on a school project for which she needed a Navajo cultural slant on some health care questions. Rodger Williams was happy to oblige.

Now the warehouse is full and ready for the Rainbow food box packing that will come soon. The major packing will take place on two Saturdays in April, the 7th and the 14th. Please join us if you can.

  1. Thank you again John! I can't be there to help like I wish, but through your writings I feel closer in spirit. Thank you again!
