To those of you who were at DeGeorge last Saturday - thank you for finding a way across the parade that surrounded DeGeorge - who knew we would hit that timing exactly perfectly? We finally got our marching band! I think we can call the tailgate a success - about 160 sirloin steaks and at least 120 baked potato servings served to the residents of DeGeorge plus hamburgers, chips and beans to all those in need who walked up. Not sure how many meals total we served but we used all 300 of the plates we brought along. And all topped off with cobbler and ice cream! As on our other trips to DeGeorge, we ran out of food before we ran out of people in need - unfortunately there seems to be no shortage of people who need real help. We had plenty of volunteers thanks to my co-workers at Costello, INC , friends of my daughter Hope from Holy Spirit Episcopal and their families, and all of the regulars from MBUMC and elsewhere. It was really good to see all of the young faces on hand! Thank you all.

Thank you again for your continued support of Tailgate with a Hero!
