We had a far smaller turnout of evacuees than we expected, but that's OK. I'd rather we have too many volunteers and too much food, than not enough. More refugees are coming though, and there will be plenty more opportunities to help and serve as Texas has said they have enough, and other states are stepping up to help out, including Arkansas.
We had BBQ from Corky's, a rock-climbing wall, a moon-bounce, toys, games, sno-cones, face-painting, and the youth group was washing cars for donations to the relief fund. It was a fun day!
I took a break this afternoon to go play some poker with my buds at the United Poker League.
This was only my second time to play with them, and out of 40 people who started, I finished 5th, getting knocked out at the final table when I missed my Flush draw after being put All-In by another player. It was fun!
If any Little Rock blogger wants to come by church tomorrow and drop off donations, or check out our service, it's at 7pm. More info here.
