Hail to the Chief!
I'm president of the P&C (that's the parents group at school, the people who do the fundraising). Today's task was pretty simply, cook up some sausages outside the local grocers (they were donating all the food), spruik for donations, and keep all we can earn. On a late spring day there's nothing easier than cooking out of doors and serving it all up to hungry Vermontians.
Would have been great if it hadn't HAILED! We got as far as setting up the BBQ (which was quite an effort - it had to travel by trailer). But the wind and rain were blowing right in and onto us, and it wasn't a good idea to continue.
And my house smells of onions now.
