On a hot, muggy day the cars began to arrive at the small church, crossing over the railroad track into the gravel parking lot. The church is small but the senior group isn't.
They call their group "Friends & Neighbors" and it's just that. They invite people from other churches and other communities to join them once a month for fellowship and food. The visiting is just as important as the food and the music. Conversation mixes with laughter. And there might be a tall tale swapped here and there!
The food was abundant and delicious. And the welcome was warm. After lunch everyone settled back to enjoy the program. The well-fed Yesterukes were more than happy to pull out the ukuleles and sing and spend a little more time here in Waterloo.
Friendship, by Cole Porter, 1932
