Many of you know that ending hunger is dear to my heart. Though this is not a health post, I feel it important to know of for those in the Baltimore area. I helped paint bowls that will be given away as part of this event. I will be attending the 5 PM meal since I am helping clean up after the wonderful Broad Mead Barn Sale (Fri and Sat AM). My husband, Mort will probably come, too. If you want to meet up with us – give a whistle to my cell – 410-428-9974 or just look for us.
