The countdown is on..


For many this means the countdown is on for the holidays, but for me, this means we are opening A CAFE (still shocked by this obviously) in a few short weeks. Hiring staff, purchasing equipment, renovating the cafe, and raising money are just a few of the things I have been working on.  It is so easy to get caught up in the to-do lists, the chaos, and the million small things left to finish. However, I must take a minute to sit back and think of how far we have come. 

"Here's the deal this Christmas...
If I am rushing, I do not see.
If I do not see, I am not present.
If I am not present, I cannot savor beauty. Or joy."
--Terry Hershey

I think it is very fitting that we are opening A Place at the Table around the holiday time. With as many things still left to do in the next few weeks, there are many more things to be thankful for. I am thankful for each one of you for believing in A Place at the Table before we had a location, your constant love and support, and your thousands of dollars in donations to make it possible. You are the reason we can create a place at the table for all. This is something for which I choose to be present, savor the beauty, and experience the joy. 

I hope you will dine and/or volunteer frequently with us in the new year. We'll have a cup of coffee, delicious food, and great community waiting for you. This holiday season truly is the happiest of holidays. 2018 here we come!

Peace,

Maggie Kane
Executive Director
