All-Saints Church in Canonsburg, PA will be hosting a one-day Food Festival on Friday September 28th, with 100% of the proceeds going to help victims of the Greek fires.  I'll be there for part of the day, but if anyone in the area can, stop by and help support them.

(As an aside - I love people who write about the victims of the Greek Fire (proper noun) instead of Greek fire (the recent blazes that were raging in Greece).  Greek Fire hasn't been around for centuries, and better yet we don't know how many people it victimized... Support the victims of Greek Fire!)

Thanks, cleveland.
Now I must figure how to be in two places at one time - 100 miles apart.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

I'm sorry to have created this dilemma.  But even if you can't make it, spread the word to people you think would be inclined to do so (since you're local and all that).

I attend All Saint's Food festivals whenever I can their food is excellent.  I will be there.  The short, fat guy with the red going white goatee is me, I'll wear my Byzantine Catholic T-shirt. Say hi if you are there.

I'll probably be there for about an hour, maybe a bit more... I'm supposed to have lunch with Fr George (of All Saints Church), so you may see me there with the priest.
