(unofficially) Summertime!

Memorial Day has passed, marking the unofficial start to summer – although the actual season won’t start for a month or so.  The weather certainly isn’t much of an indicator either!

Calendars, clocks, holidays or weather – whatever marker makes you connect with the change in seasons, all I can say is I’M READY and keep thinking of ways to encourage the warmer weather to hang around (not that my actions make that much of an impact).

One thing I do know… it’s time for some laid back summertime days!  Less schedule, more fireflies!

There’s some catching up to do…a few things that have been on the back burner for a while; there’s some cleaning up to do…a few things that need some spit and polish; and there’s some changes in the air…a few things that have been waiting for the “right time”. For the next couple of weeks, our goal is to simplify our “front end” and give some attention to the behind the scenes details that keep All Are Welcome running smoothly!

Our team of volunteers works very hard preparing, cooking and serving our weekly meals and we think everyone should be able to “take it easy” during the beautiful weather that’s supposed to be just around the corner! We have some student groups joining us for summer service, our menu is going to be a little more basic and (hopefully) we’ll be giving some of our regular staff some more free time!

We could use a few “fill-in” volunteers – even if you only have one day a month to share!  Please feel free to email us at manager@allarewelcome.us or call our office number at 508-443-0243. Even if you’ve never worked in a restaurant before, we’d love to have you give our organization a try!

The JUNE menu is posted on our menu page – if you haven’t eaten at All Are Welcome before, I hope you’ll find something you’d like to try and join us for a community meal soon!  Feel free to print and post our menu and invite friends and family to try us out, also!

Happy Summer!
