The Holidays are just around the corner and we just finished another successful distribution in October. We had great volunteers and look forward to November 20th as our Pre-Thanksgiving distribution. This day is also the opening day of duck season, a very special day to me but Melanie says I must prevail and have a distribution that day so everyone can be sure to have a Thanksgiving meal. I have been blessed with many days to hunt and the distribution is much more important---just have to remind Melanie as she prompted me about this when we first started!!!
Donations have been slow I think due to the poor economy; however we are able to keep going.
On a real positive note Reverend Dubois is now home, doing well and planning to return to the food bank this month!!!!
We are approaching our third anniversary in December and we would like to recognize Ray Hugueley, a deacon from First Baptist Church as he is the only volunteer to NEVER miss a distribution. Ray started out at the beginning helping us prepare the building for service and then proceeded to be a dedicated volunteer always heading up our number three bag preparation. Everyone please give Ray a big thanks for his dedication.
God Bless you all and please keep the Hughes Christian Outreach Ministries in your prayers and ask God to KEEP blessing us!
Hope to see you all on the 23rd,
