By Tom Williams After the crazy spike in new Covid cases in January 2022 my heart sank. I had been truly hoping that OTHG could begin gathering again in the new year. January became February which became March. In March we returned to OTHG but without serving a meal, because there were still concerns about Covid and food safety.
Attendance varied week to week between 5 and 12. We brought our own lunches and played games.
We were making plans to start serving lunch again in May. However, the city of Liberty Hill, which owns the building, suspended us once again. They used the building for an early voting site from mid April through the end of May.
June 2nd we came back with our first meal together in all too many months. We had a pizza party. The following week we had fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, coleslaw, jello fruit salad. And, of course, a pot of beans. Meals have officially started.
Through all the ups and downs of the past couple of years some of our former regular-attenders have passed away. Some regulars haven’t returned as quickly as is hoped. But the bright spot is we are attracting new members.
We’ve also expanded to a once a month First Friday Potluck and Game Night.
