Quote from Christian Persaud
“I just wanted to thank everyone who helped out with Saturday’s dinner; from peeling vegetables, to serving, to praying. I’m sure there was some frustration, a lot of laughter, and definitely a great time for everyone. As much as the dinner is a fundraiser and there’s a financial aspect to the dinner, I’m extremely grateful for the community side. You know, there are people who come from as far away as Ottawa to attend the dinner, and it’s such a special opportunity for the community to come out and catch up with individuals they haven’t seen in a long time. So thank-you to each and every one of you who helped out in some way, it is greatly appreciated.”
