Last year, my family and I decided instead of paying for the community meals, we could eat cheaper if we fed ourselves. Boy, were we wrong.
Not in the sense that we spent more money on the food we brought, but we lost out on the value of sitting down to a common meal with the rest of the attendees.
When community mealtimes came, we separated from our friends, new and old to go off and eat from our ice chest.
This year, we’ve agreed that we’ll spend the extra on community meals. Being able to sit and break bread with like minded people is undervalued, but not by us this year.
We hope to see everyone there with us, we look forward to connecting with you.
