The Invited Inn, the free Thursday evening hot meal program for the needy hosted by Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, honored its' volunteer staff at a special "Thank-you Dinner" on Tuesday, September 11. Carol Moor, who has for twenty years served as the program's coordinator, reminded those present of the importance of their service and thanked them for their dedication and commitment. "Together," she said, "we have welcomed hundreds of guests and served thousands of nutritious meals. We have learned that hunger takes many forms and that, ironically, through our service we too have been fed." Jean Kelly, Executive Director of The Interfaith Nutrition Network, the Invited Inn's parent organization, was keynote speaker at the event. The evening ended with a gesture of support and encouragement from the congregation as Vicky Bender, Chairperson of Trinity's Social Ministry Committee, presented the Inn with a check for $1,100.
Jeffrey Kolbo is Senior Pastor of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church.
