Re: Community dinner resumes after fire, June 29.
It was good to read that the King’s Banquet has resumed at Star of the Sea. This is a valuable service to the White Rock community and draws well over 100 folks each Tuesday.
It was disappointing however, that there was no mention, in the article, of the fact that Kent Street Seniors Activity Centre attempted to fill the gap for three of those Tuesdays while the community hall recovered from water and smoke damage.
It took a while for word to spread about the change in venue, but by the third Tuesday the number of attendees had tripled.
Pat Faulkner and her crew of volunteers at the Kent Street kitchen did their best to fill a need for a while, and that should be acknowledged.
