A Night of Patriotism

A couple of Fridays ago Zach and I attended the Beats, Beets and Eats, Desert Angel Packing Night, sponsored by the OUMC. Local businesses donated items like toiletries, snacks, candy, books and movies to put into care packages and ship to the soldiers over seas.

There was at least 6, 8 foot tables lined end to end piled with donated items. People lined up with their empty box, and went down the line choosing items to send to their soldier.

Then we were encouraged to write a letter to our soldier, telling them what was going on in the States and thanking them for their hard work, dedication and sacrifice.

We were especially excited because Zach's soldier got in touch with him a few weeks after the event.

The sense of community was amazing!

There are still a few nights of Beats, Beets and Eats left to attend. To check out the event schedule visit the June 14th Post, Beats, Beets and Eats 2010 or visit the DDA website at
