Special Lunch For A Special Day

By Baptiste Etchegaray

Voters do need a reward. The women association from the Columbia First Christian Church organized, as for every Election Day, a special lunch that anyone could attend, proud to wear the “I voted” button. For $6, you could get chili or potato soup, as well as a ham sandwich and a home made pie. The money raised goes to the church’s social missions. Women led the way but they are now joined by men “and this is fun!” explains Brenda Mosby, a cooker for the occasion. Almost 500 guests were served between 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM in the canteen where politics as well as random neighborhood stuff were discussed.

Guests were rather aged and conservative. One of them voted for John McCain this morning because he served with him in Vietnam. “He’s a wonderful Christian, a smart guy, I’m sure he’s gonna win! I’ll tell you something: if the other man wins, we’ll have a war in this country down the road,” he said.
