July Garden and Grill A Success!
The community garden continues to grow and our July Garden and Grill Meal was attended by nearly 100 people! An enormous “thank you” to the nearly 50 Trinity folks who came out to help with our second Garden and Grill on Tuesday, July 18! We represented almost half of those in attendance which allowed us the opportunity to really engage with our community.
The food was fabulous and the kitchen crew amazing. “Thanks” to those who “sweated it out” (literally and figuratively) putting up the tents, tables and chairs. “Thanks” to all those who served as table hosts and to the many, many folks who provided such a lovely variety of side dishes. Thanks to our grill masters and our musicians. We fed the hungry and sent some home with fresh garden produce. We got to know some Centennial neighbors. We had several repeat attenders from the prior month’s Garden and Grill meal, including a couple of community service providers. One case worker brought a few clients to the June meal and this month’s meal. She thanked our church for providing her clients with an opportunity to attend this meal. She remarked that, along with providing good home-cooked food, her clients had the opportunity to strengthen their social skills in a gracious and informal environment. What a blessing!
We are so thankful to all who volunteered and for the good and faithful work we are doing together to demonstrate the grace of Christ, build community and express unconditional hospitality and welcome.

I'm sad that I wasn't able to attend in this event. I've been waiting for the opening day for a long time now. I really wish that you guys can make another one. I'll be sure to make this time and will be marking my calendar in advance. Great job in this garden and grill event and I'll be looking forward to the next one.
