"Free Hot Chocolate from Restore Community Church down at the corner. And it is good too. They put whipped cream on it." That was what the announcer said at the Jingle Bell 5K run at Zona Rosa yesterday. We handed out 160 cups of Hot chocolate and over 400 water bottles all with Restore Community Church labels on them.
I am so proud of the volunteers who came out to help. Kent and Cherilyn were there early to figure out how to tie the sign to our tent. Brooke was the whipped cream queen. Jake, Shane, Bailey, Nancy, Cormic, Declan and Matt met the runners as they finished the race with a bottle of water in hand. Rose was a cheerleader....calling out "hey everyone over here" while also serving and stirring cups of hot chocolate. Oh, and she danced....with Gretchen. Charlene was the one who put the powdered hot chocolate in the cups and opened cases of water. Jacob B. was saying "Hi" to everyone and making conversation while also stirring up hot chocolate. Gretchen had her moments with whipped cream, stirring chocolate and filling cups.
It was a blast!
