The latest cooking effort by Southern Rensselaer County Rotary Club at Ronald McDonald House in Albany on Wednesday was a big hit.

As Roberto Martinez reported:

“Before we started cooking a couple came up to thank us. … They remarked how words couldn’t explain how much it was appreciated and what a blessing it was to have someone helping them with the food. Their child was in the hospital for the last week.

“I spoke to a child while he was eating and asked what was his favorite. ‘The tortellini, the broccoli in the salad, and the chicken nuggets’,” he replied.

“The family … reminded us of why we were there and what is means to be a Rotarian.”

Thanks to the volunteers in the kitchen, and to those who helped put the event together ahead of time.
