Molto Bene!

The Barristers really came together this weekend to prepare dinner for about thirty homeless people at SaMoShel.  They got a delicious dinner of chicken parmasean, penne bolognese, Italian salad, and garlic bread, along with a healthy serving of vanilla-almond pudding (with a much fancier sounding name) for dessert.  We got cooking lessons from Roshni Gandhi, Anton Labrentz, and Leroy Williams.  Everyone had a blast!

Join us for the next SaMoShel meeting on Nov. 9!
