Members of CCP and Ohavi Zedek will bring a pilot program of Restaurant Roundup to market. Leunig’s has generously offered to be our pilot and you should see signs, literally, in the next couple of weeks.
To refresh your memory, Restaurant Roundup is a program that is based on City Market’s Rally for Change. When you pay your bill, you are asked to round up to the nearest dollar and the money is donated to food charities.
CCP has a long-standing strong commitment to More Light, the Presbyterian Church, USA's open and affirming appreciation for inclusion of our LGBT brothers and sisters. We demonstrate this commitment in a number of ways, including walking each year in the Burlington Pride Parade, with a CCP banner that reads:" All are welcome at God's table". This year, CCP marchers included: Ron and Joy McGarvey, Amity Baker, Sue and Al Brooks, Tom and Mary Beth Barritt. And, waving from the St. Paul's convertible, was our own Joanne Granai.

Our own Mary Beth Barritt appeared with Debbie Ingram and Earl Kooperkamp, pastor of Church of the Good Shepherd in Montpelier, and Debbie Ingram, Director of VIA on Channel 17’s “Live at 5:25” to talk about the activities of CCP’s Gleaners group. Here’s the episode if you missed the broadcast.
