Can you believe that 2011 is shortly coming to a close? As we come roaring into 2012 we have the chance to reflect on the year we had and what the future may bring to us. December allows us the time to gather, reflect and rejoice in all that we have. It also is a time that we are able to give to others.
SeaVenture management and staff joined together to collect food for the San Luis Obispo Food Bank this year at our annual Holiday Party. It was so impressive to see the staff, one after another, coming in with bag after bag of canned goods and non-perishable items. Tables for each department became stacked high, so much we had to add on other tables to hold everything! Bags and boxes were packed up and delivered to the Food Bank at the conclusion of our party. What a great feeling to give back to those less fortunate than ourselves.
Running a restaurant and always having a full walk in of food, as well as what I find in my own pantry and home refrigerator often makes us forget about how plentiful most of us have it. However, just not in other countries, but right here at home, many suffer.
Here’s to wishing you a Holiday Season filled with cheer, reflection, good tidings, true meanings, helping others, and togetherness. May those ideals carry with us not only at this time of the year, but all the year through.
