Rotarian Deb Hage: Community dinner still needed in Silverthorne

Nov. 24 dinner statistics – The Rotarian Tuesday community dinner in Silverthorne served 281 people, including 92 children. Rotarian Doug Pierce generously delivered BBQ pork, buns, cole slaw, potato salad, chili, tortillas and pickles from his restaurant in Dillon, The Arapahoe Cafe.

“It was all melt-in-your-mouth delicious,” dinner spokeswoman Deb Hage said. Frank Coussins and Del Anderson also contributed.

Hage added that Bo Tomlyn provided entertainment by playing piano for more than an hour.

“Everybody loved it,” she said. “We hope he comes again.”

According to Hage, a number of people came up to her and “expressed tearful, heartfelt gratitude for the weekly meals.”

“One woman, with five elementary-aged children came to the dinner,” she said. “When I asked, as she left, if they had all gotten enough to eat (that food pusher element in my personality rearing its head) she said they had eaten as much as they could. She explained that three of the children had parents who were both at work and she had brought them to the dinner with her and her children as she knew there was no food in their house.”

The Nov. 17 dinner hosted 295 people, including 98 children.
