Thank you for Easter food and kindness

I would like to convey to you and the public the events that took place on Easter Sunday, March 31, in our Rock Falls community.

A small group of individuals took it upon themselves to skillfully prepare, cook, and serve a wonderful home-style meal to the public, free of charge.

The food was delicious, and you could tell that they had put loving care into it.

In the world that we live in today, it is very few and far between that people go out of their way to perform such niceties.

Even though it was Easter, those individuals showed me that an unrewarded, decent act of kindness is still possible today.

Those individuals, with no agenda in mind, accepted no payment.

As a member of our community, I would like to thank all of the individuals involved. I saw the kindness that was given to people who came to this meal.

I sometimes think what a better place this world would be if everyone did a random act of kindness like those individuals did.

I would like to thank all involved that day. Once again, their food was superb and their kindness outstanding.

What you kind people did was noticed. Thank you.
