Planning is under way for the 5th annual Come Together Community Meal & Resource Fair.
We have reserved the Marshall White Center, 222 28th St., in Ogden, for Friday, Nov. 6, in the afternoon and evening for setup, and Saturday, Nov. 7, for the meal.
We have a Mission Statement to guide our goals and define the scope of this huge project:
The mission of the Annual Come Together Community Meal and Resource Fair is to bring together houses of faith, nonprofit charities, governmental agencies and individual volunteers to provide hospitality, share resources, and relay information about services available for people who are in crisis, transition, or in poverty, while sharing a meal and conversation.
And we have a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ComeTogetherCommunityMeal. Be sure to Like it, Share it and help create some buzz, as well as recruiting volunteers.
The Planning Committee will be meeting monthly for the next several months until we get closer to the Nov. 7 date. Several subcommittees have also formed to organize Publicity, Volunteers, Food, Services, Venue, etc.
If anyone in the congregation has questions or input, you can contact Marion Horna or John Uscilka, who are co-coordinators for the Planning Committee.
