This is best number we could arrive at as the number of plates that were served this afternoon as part of The Union Gospel Missions Annual FREE Easter Community meal.  Ham with pineapples, green beans, corn, rolls, desserts (and more desserts) with sweet tea and water was served to the homeless and less fortunate from the Tri-State area.   All the volunteers - we say THANK YOU with more pictures to follow.
