Thank you to our 32 volunteers who served the Waco community at this year's HEB Feast of Sharing.  Approximately 7000 delicious free meals were enjoyed by area residents, which included ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls and apple pie.  Our volunteers served drinks, apple pie and dinner plates, cleaned tables and set up new place settings, directed residents to open sections, and worked in the serving line.  Various musical groups entertained and children enjoyed arts and crafts and visiting with Santa.
