remember the fork?

the infamous pasadena fork is back in the news. i'll let the fork in the road gang explain in their own words...

"Saturday and Sunday from 8 to 4 P.M. Bob Stane, Ken Marshall (The Coffee Gallery Backstage) and Philip Coombes( will be launching Pasadena's largest food drive ever! benefiting Union Station Homeless services. Union Station Homeless Services will be feeding more than 5,000 people in the park on Thanksgiving Day and any non-perishables you can drop off at the fork this weekend will be greatly appreciated and much needed.

The food drive will be taking place at The infamous "Fork" located at the "fork in the road" where St. John and Pasadena Ave. meet. (or divide depending if your cup is half full or half empty) This is just South of
Huntington Hospital and Bellfontaine. (From now on, this piece of dirt is dubbed, "Fork Plaza"). Please look for the volunteers wearing bright Orange shirts. Simply go slow, roll down your window and give your non-perishable food items to the volunteers with outreach bags."

thanks to petrea for the heads up that this was happening.

Thank you, Ben! Did you get down there today, by any chance? I wonder how it's gone so far.

I didn't get a chance - something else filled my time, which I'll explain in photos this coming week!
