A great lunch...
We don’t close our office during the day which leads to us eating out or ordering in most of the time. We have always taken advantage of various groups and organizations that use delivered lunches as part of their fundraising efforts. I must say they are always a great value and very good.
Monday’s are particularly difficult since that is deadline day. I usually pay for the staff’s working lunch on Mondays. We figure out what we want and someone runs out and collects the orders. This past Monday, happened to be a day that the Chapel Fire Department was delivering lunches. The choices were great. I chose a chef’s salad and boy did I get my money’s worth. I could probably lose some weight eating salads if they were all as tasty as today. The meals were not only very good... it was obvious that the women at the fire department had spent a lot of time preparing, packaging and delivering them. My hat is off to you all for a job well done. Keep us on your list when the next lunch day rolls around.

A generous offer….
We plan to do a news article on this subject but I also wanted to address it in this space. It is no secret that I am proud to have graduated from Gassaway High School. People like the one I want to talk about here is one of the many reasons why.
Jim Lambert paid me a visit this week. He had been to the most recent GHS Alumni meeting, which I had forgotten. He brought me a copy of a hand written letter that one of the members had received from a GHS alum. That communications told how this gentleman had learned of the GHS Scholarship Fund and how he wanted to help. This benefactor, whom we will not name for fear of embarrassing him, offered to match any donation to the Scholarship Fund up to $100,000. His offer stands good for all monies collected through the end of this year.
That’s a tremendous gesture. I hope former graduates take advantage of this opportunity to double down on helping descendants of Gassaway High School further their education. When we do the article, we will include information on how to make out your check and were to send them. So, fellow GHS grads, open up that check book and lets get ready to help others in the name of our school!!!
