NEWS FROM JUNE 2021
As of June 2021, our dedicated staff is continuing to serve take-out meals. While we were hoping to reopen the dining room back in January, we decided to wait a bit longer to ensure the safety of our staff and patrons. We will continue to monitor the number of positive cases and vaccinations in our area and decide to reopen the dining room when we feel it is safe for all involved.
Since our last newsletter, the Light House Cafe has continued to be blessed by volunteers from the Church of the Latter-Day Saints. These missionaries have been serving once or twice per week. They have completed some heavy-duty cleaning, lifting, and rearranging in the freezer, dining room, and dry storage. We are very grateful for their service!
More than once in the last few months, we have been surprised and blessed by special deliveries. Recently, a Vauxhal Transport driver stopped by with a load of the most beautiful cucumbers, red peppers, and yellow peppers. On the day of this delivery, two technicians from Glades Gas also happened to be here checking out an air-conditioner and pitched in to help unload the truck. A special thanks to David and Cuhy; your help was indeed a blessing. We also always love getting a call from Jeff McMillian with Two Brothers Transport to come to pick up salads! Our patrons greatly enjoy the fresh salads! Thank you, Jeff!
We have a couple more thank yous to share! First, to the family of Reverend Rod Ruby, Kathy, Kevin, and Terri – thank you for donating a scooter to Edwina Haynes. Edwina could not get out and about as she is unable to push a regular wheelchair. Second, thank you to Kiely and Nick Larsen for teaching their son John to be a giving, caring person! John donated the meat from a steer that he raised to the Light House Cafe; this is truly a blessing! There have certainly been many more acts of kindness bestowed upon us! We are very grateful for everyone who supports the Light House Cafe, as we could not do it without each of you!
Last but not least, please pray for the people we serve, many of whom are affected by drug and or alcohol abuse or are suffering from mental illness. Also, please continue to pray over the staff and volunteers of the Light House Cafe.
