Many of us are very fortunate to have nearby families and friends whom we can share Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Day, Easter, etc. For those of us, we oftimes don't remember that there are others out there who don't have that option.
This past Thanksgiving of 2009, Leoti's Route 96 Cafe remained open for lunch that day. I was not there but I have spoken with people who were. They were VERY happy with the quality and abundance of the food there! Most importantly, they were humbled at the aspect of being able to gather with others on this wonderful day. One such person told me that if the Cafe had not chosen to be open, he would have been forced to eat a turkey TV dinner instead.
Thank you to the Route 96 Cafe's powers-that-be and to those of you who prepared the food, waited tables and washed dishes at the cafe on Thanksgiving!!!
