For the 35th year, Church Women United of Glendale put on their all-you-can-eat Salad Bar Luncheon to benefit the Salvation Army’s “Meals on Wheels” program. On July 24 more than 200 hungry salad-eaters each paid an $8 donation for lunch served between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at First United Methodist. If salad wasn’t their thing, there was also bread and deviled eggs.
Event Co-chairmen Keril Drake from Salvation Lutheran Church and Evelyn Horigan from Central Christian Church kept the salad bowls replenished. A favorite was the Chinese Chicken salad that disappeared in spite of efforts to keep the bowl full. Helping Drake was her 15-year-old daughter, Celeste Drake. Celeste is a 10th grader at Salem Lutheran and often takes advantage of ways to earn community hours, a requirement of her school.
Adding to the largesse were also donations from popular restaurants in Glendale. A new restaurant that contributed this year was the New Moon in Montrose. Other restaurants were Conrad’s, Billy’s, Art’s Meat Market, Marie Callender’s and Foxy’s.
