FRS participated in the Friendship Table at the Salvation Army on Thursday, January 19. We seem to be serving fewer guests lately which means we are giving larger servings of lasagna. We are also providing meals for people who request to-go orders. We had a considerable number of helpers which actually worked out quite well. The Salvation Army provided us with two high school students, one of whom required some sustained ongoing support. It was quite a challenge to keep him on task. I am a retired teacher and he provided me with opportunities to use some of the strategies I used to manage children in my classrooms. I wasn't as rusty as I thought!
