ImageWe started at 9 a.m. and the lunch bags were assembled, each with a bag of potato chips, some juice, rice crispies, condiments,apple sauce, water and a hot dog. Eventually 575 of them were produced, feeding approximately 500 "Special Olympics" participants, teachers, monitors, and other staff.

We worked in the "multipurpose" room on the sprawling campus of Sierra Gardens Park, located in Roseville. Our hot dogs were cooked (boiled) in two heavy caldrons just outside the room (on the left) and they were served on a small patio off the right side of the building.

When they came for lunch, it was a great pleasure to serve them their luncheon bags and to see  their happiness.                                             ImageImageImageImage
