As STC member Lonna White commented, “…sometimes you just need to get outside yourself.” And that’s exactly what members of the STC Southern Nevada Chapter did on Saturday morning, August 17, 2013. For its annual community service event, the group met at a local food bank and picked up bags of fruits, vegetables, and non-perishables to be delivered to those in need throughout the Las Vegas Valley. Two STC teams set off armed with groceries, cell phones, a list of names, and maps. From there on out, it was anyone’s guess as to what could be expected at each stop. The teams traveled to areas they didn’t know existed, into environs completely remote from their own comfortable neighborhoods. Casts of colorful characters were encountered every mile of the way.
