Tony’s Cooking Again

April 19th, 2011

4-19-11Driving every day this week from Savannah to New York City in The Kindness Bus, makes it a challenge to get much done. I am making my way north through many of the same towns I visited in the fall. Today I passed through Wilmington on my way to Jacksonville, NC. Wilmington was home to The Kindness Bus Tour during Thanksgiving week last year. The Boys and Girls Club was my main focus last year, as Thanksgiving week was the week where I volunteered to help renovate a few of the structures on their campus.
Spring break is in session and when I pulled up to the building I thought they were closed. I was very wrong. Tony was cooking lunch for the kids like he was in competition for Iron Chef. It is the only time the kids are quiet during the day as Tony wields the ladle and seems to portion more to the well behaved kids, reminds me of a Seinfeld episode. Tony is a great role model for all of these kids and it was a pleasure seeing him in action again. I left stickers for all of the kids at the club. Tony offered me lunch but I told him I was still full from his Thanksgiving dinner.
