There’s a natural link between friends and food. In the same way that all good house parties end up in the kitchen, food plays a major role in Friendship Day activities in Lennoxville. And it all starts with a healthy breakfast. Since the very first Friendship Day 29 years ago, the United Church has been serving a breakfast. Now a tradition for many of the volunteers that help out with the day’s activities, it’s no small feat getting that early bird special off the ground, according to Frankie Noble, who helps put the morning meal together. “Deanna McNab is the one that gets everything started,” Noble said. McNab solicits the food donations and contacts the volunteers to see if everyone is up to the same job they had the year before. “She and her husband spent the better part of Friday,” explained Noble, setting up the tables and getting the room ready. The food warmers for the buffet style breakfast are borrowed from The Hut. See full story in the Thursday, June 6 edition of The Record.
