On Saturday December 6th the 01 Perry Elites performed the serving duties at the Cor Unum meal center in Lawrence right after their 1:20 pm game.
A special thanks to the parents that participated washing dishes, helping out in the kitchen and helped the boys with the serving of the meals. The boys all had their duties and performed well. Overall we were told it was a slow night due to the rain but we still served about 130 people. Both the boys and the parents helped out with the cleaning afterward mopping the floor, cleaning the bathrooms and kitchen.
A great eye opener for the boys as well as us parents. Sometimes we forget how blessed we are. The team was very grateful for being able to help. We really enjoyed our selves and might do a return visit. Any other teams looking to participate let me know as they are always looking for volunteers.
