If it's Saturday, This Must be Urbana!

Mike's campaign group have started what we call an SRT, which stands for Supper Response Team. Sort of has a law enforcement ring to it, doesn't it? Like a law enforcement response team, when the call goes out, the group mobilizes and prepares to.....eat! So far we've had soup at Northfield, chicken at Southwood, breakfast at Lagro, pancakes at Urbana, tenderloins with the Roann Volunteer Fire Department, fish and tenderloins at the Lafontaine Methodist Church, breaded tenderloins via the Richvalley Lion's Club and today, fish prepared by the Urbana Lion's Club. Tonight is spaghetti at Scout Hall in North Manchester. This presents a great opportunity kill the two proverbial birds with one stone. First, it enables us to socialize with a lot of people in the county while eating a lot of good food and at the same time, we are also contributing to all the worthy causes these dinners take place to support.

There is really only one problem with being a member of the SRT and John put it in a nutshell when he asked me if we were going to have "before" and "after" pictures taken - now and 20 pounds from now. I felt Mike out about whether he would pay our Weight Watchers dues when the campaign is over but he said it is every eater for him or herself!
