Hello friends and family!
My mom would always ask in our telephone calls, "What are you having for dinner?" This conversation started, a family tradition, resulted in recipe swapping or admiration for the meal to be prepared. Sadly, there are a shocking number of families in our country who are unable to answer that question with any degree of certainty. If answered, many would report a nutritionally inadequate mean.
Yesterday was a beautiful early fall day in New England. It was a perfect day to take a ride in the country. Alison and Piper Smythe, Ed Juozokas, and I rode a cumulative 100 miles in support of the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. We were joined by more than 300 other riders, all gathered in support of the Food Bank. The hills seemed especially designed to challenge us, but we were rewarded after the ride with great camaraderie for the spirit and some tasty food to revive the body. We all vowed/threatened/promised to ride again next year.
Thanks to your help, Team Trinity raised over $1500. Our friends, relatives, and church family supported us generously of which we are truly grateful and humbled. The Food Bank, with their amazing leveraging power, is able to turn each $1 donated into 3 meals for families in need of support. We are all so pleased with your extraordinary show of support and your donations.
With humble thanks,
