October Family Dinner

This past Sunday, the Tiny Home for Good family gathered for our monthly dinner at the Brady Faith Center. We were joined by members of our board, staff, residents, family and close friends. It was an evening full of good conversation and comforting food. 

Every month we aim to organize a pot-luck-style dinner. Since we began this past July, each gathering has been a great experience. The dinners are a wonderful way to bring our community together and take a moment to catch up with everyone. 

On this particular evening, we celebrated two new residents and the progress we've made with homes on South Salina. We also met three Syracuse University students who are partnering with us to develop a special database just for THG. It is always exciting to meet new friends who are invested in our common goal of providing safe and dignified housing to alleviate homelessness.

Tonight's home cooked meal was truly a team effort! Members of our Board were the master chefs of the night: Beth Scanlon made baked ziti and meatballs, Bill Elkins and his wife, Betsy Elkins, brought french bread, David Chaplain provided drinks, and Larry Stewart cooked roasted vegetables. Cathy Schuh Lunetta and Sue Schuh, family of our Executive Director Andrew Lunetta, brought a beautiful green salad. For dessert, Andrew made homemade apple pie (locally-picked of course) and ice cream.

Overall, the evening was another great success. Gatherings like this remind us of how important family and friendship are to community building. Many, many thanks to everyone who was able to attend and share their culinary talents. We look forward to meeting again soon.
