MLK Potluck Reminder – “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one."

First Lady Michelle Obama asked us to spend this Saturday in service to others. I firmly believe that we should spend every day giving of ourselves to others. Author Jeff Warner once said, “we are not put on this earth for ourselves, but are placed here for each other. If you are there always for others, then in time of need, someone will be there for you.”
Tomorrow, Saturday, January 19 is an opportunity for you to join with the New Democrats at the Annual MLK Potluck Party and Canned Food Drive, hosted by Amelia and me at our home, 535 West 8th Street at 7:00 pm. It’s an opportunity for you to donate canned goods and other non perishables to one of our local food banks. It’s also an opportunity for you to socialize with friends and to meet some new people. Bring a dish to share.

Your donations maybe dropped off today at my door or you may bring them to the party. We look forward to a day of service and a day of giving. Amelia and I welcome you to our home. We make one simple request, in the words of Mother Teresa, If you can't feed a hundred people, then just feed one.

Adrian and Amelia
