College of Lake County, Saturday, 5/12/2019, 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Food, drinks, snacks, and lots of fun! As a new member to the Grayslake chapter of the Exchange Club I have to say that I was very impressed. I had just become a member this last Thursday and I cannot express to you how pleased I was with the graciousness shown to me, as though I had been around for a long time. These people really know how to make you feel at home.
With this kind of favor I could not help but offer my services to the setting up of the Food Frenzy this coming Saturday. So at 8:00 AM I was at the site ready to assist. Club members were coming in with their pickups and vans filled with tents and tables that would be used to put the event in order.
I also had the honor to meet Scot Warren, the National President of the Exchange Club for 2018 & 2019! But do not be fooled, Scot was pitching in like everyone else, by lifting tables, chairs, tents!
The weather during setup was overcast but fine. There was no rain and the temperature was nice. You only needed a light jacket. At 10:00 AM when my shift had ended I had to depart to do my services at the First Holy Communion for the Second Graders at St. Gilbert’s Parish, in Grayslake.
Later in the afternoon, after the church event I came back to check on things. The weather was getting cooler and a bit of raid started to set in. But this did not stop the program. There were a lot of people in attendance and people were enjoying themselves.
At the end of the day I returned to help take down. It was a pleasure to work with such fine, friendly, and good natured people.
