Letter: Elks help at Bread & Broth
To the community,
Bread & Broth serves two meals weekly and welcomes everyone from our Lake Tahoe Shore community to enjoy the wonderful dinners prepared by our talented and creative volunteer cooks and warmly served by our dinner crew volunteers. Our meals are not only meant to ease hunger, but to prove the opportunity to spend a meal in fellowship with other community members. Being hungry is not a prerequisite to enjoy our meals.
Every Monday, B&B invites everyone to attend a full-course meal at St. Theresa’s Grace Hall from 4-5:30pm. These Monday dinners are funded through the Adopt A Day of Nourishment program where individuals, families, organizations and businesses host the dinner by donating $300 to cover the meal’s costs and send a sponsor volunteer crew to assist at the dinner. On July 16, the Tahoe Douglas Elks Lodge No. 2670 was the generous sponsor and Elk members Roger and Jeanne Barragan, Roger Koeck, Steve Kurek and Steve Lannen volunteered at their club’s sponsorship dinner.
According to Roger, the club’s chairman trustee, the “Elks are here to help.” For many years now, the Elks Lodge has been sponsoring Monday dinners several times a year and their members have volunteered many hours of their personal time to help at their B&B truly appreciates the Tahoe Douglas Elks Lodge No. 2670 for their continuing support of our programs.
In addition to the Monday meal, every Friday, a soup and simple entrée meal is served from 4-5pm at the Lake Tahoe Community Presbyterian Church; and once again all are welcome to these dinners.
