As the employees of the east side volunteer office here at Rocky, Lindsey, Zephyr, and I had the chance to attend the Colorado River District's volunteer appreciation event, and we also somehow got everything together in time for the east side's event. Even in a social context, I continue to learn from Rocky's volunteers every time I have the chance to interact with them, and these two events were no exception. Filled with inspiration (and perspiration from the organizers!), we all managed to pull off the appreciation events with full stomachs and bright smiles.
I had heard that the CRD's potluck is normally a culinary feat, but nothing could have prepared me for the feast that I encountered when all of the dishes were brought into the Winding River Resort. With dozens of deviled eggs,a medley of crock pot masterpieces, and potato salad for miles, the CRD volunteers, and their east side guests, ate to the brim of capacity,and then some.
