By Tamma Plymesser, Executive Director PRC –
Supper time. Those words evoke thoughts of times gone by. Times when children were free to play outside till dusk fell and you heard the call echoing up and down the street, “Come home, it’s supper time.” All the kids would stop their play and run home to supper.
I can remember my own childhood in Levanna, we’d all end up at Wilson’s ballfield…but the game always ended at the first call of “suppertime.” For my kids who often roamed the hillsides, they knew three short blasts of a car horn meant it was suppertime.
Suppertime…do families even sit around the table every night anymore? I know we did as children, as we did with our children. Suppertime was family time. Our boys knew you had to be there if you wanted to eat. And with four growing boys, you didn’t want to miss mealtime, because there were no leftovers!
Suppertime was a time of sharing, a time of bonding. You heard about the trials and joys of the day from the other family members. It was a time to encourage and uplift each other. It was a time to hear the news (and gossip) of the community as family members talked.
Suppertime is a time to share the needs of family with each other. A time to ask for help and give advice. And that is exactly what happens once a year at the Pregnancy Resource Center A Place of Hope Spring Partnership Dinner.
Once a year we invite the PRC “family” of supporters to join us for “supper.” During the evening, we share the joys, trials and yes, sometimes, the heartaches we have encountered throughout the year.
We share our needs and give our PRC family the opportunity to support the services of the PRC by making a donation. We invite the community to come to supper with the Pregnancy Resource Center—A Place of Hope on Thursday, April 27 at the Sardinia Church of Christ, 7130 Bodman Road in Sardinia, Ohio at 7 p.m., seating of guests will begin at 6:45 p.m. We will treat you to a delicious meal, great entertainment and an opportunity to learn more about the PRC and the services provided to better the lives of the families with infants and toddlers here in Brown County.
Please call the Pregnancy Resource Center for tables of six or more, (937) 378-6853. Smaller parties will be seated as they arrive. I hope to see many new faces, come to enjoy an old-fashioned family supper with the PRC family of staff, board members, volunteers and supporters.
