For months, the Dufferin Construction crew has been hard at work making improvements to Main Street while replacing aging infrastructure below ground.
This week a team of women from Trinity United Church wanted to say thanks by making them a hot meal during their lunch break.
Four women — Zelda Dwyer, Karen Parr, Nancy Waxl, Shirley Woodard — recently formed ‘The Hospitality Team’ at the church and wanted to make this their first initiative to give back.
“My gosh, they have been out there working so hard no matter rain or shine,” said Nancy Waxl. “We really just wanted to help them out and make sure they know we appreciate them.”
They were put in contact with Dufferin supervisor, John Miller, to make the arrangements.
The ladies then planned a homemade menu perfect for a cool October day: chili con carne, tea biscuits, coleslaw, and apple or cherry pie.
As soon as they put out a call to the church community for help, they had a flood of people offering to make pies and biscuits. The ladies made the chili and coleslaw at the church the morning of the lunch using Waxl’s go-to chili recipe.
On Wednesday, October 20, more than 25 crew members gathered outside Trinity during their noon break and were handed a brown bag filled with goodies.
“I can’t even put into words how kind it was for them to do this for us,” said Dufferin supervisor John Miller. “The crew was very excited and we want them to know how much we appreciate it.”
