Meal Time: Dinner from 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Today's Team: The Robida Family at The United Church of Chester
When: Once a Quarter
Team History: Originally volunteers as part of the church's Youth Group, three years ago the Robidas decided to form their own Team. Sometimes they are also joined by the McKenna & Robertson families. They've created a wonderful family tradition of helping others!
Special Meal: This spring they had a special cook-out for Memorial Day. The Robidas brought their own brand new grill down to the church, and the guests enjoyed grilled chicken, hamburgers and hotdogs, along with other summer treats.
Today's Menu: Baked ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, garden salad, fresh bread, peach pie and ice cream.
Something Special: Every week a local bakery, Cozy Corner Bake Shoppe, donates a large assortment of baked goods and pastries that guests can take home.
