The Salvation Army has been in the news a lot lately; it's because giving back is news worthy.

Sally's Kitchen at the Salvation Army held their last lunch recently, that is until the summer is over and the new Salvation Army building opens for business.

"The last one was fabulous, fabulous! It was great because everyone was relaxed," said Diane Snyder, whoc volunteers with the Salvation Army. "We had a lot of fun, we had music and it was just a really good wind-up."

Sally's Kitchen is normally three dollars to get in to eat, but according to Snyder, they will never turn away a body who is hungry and wants to eat. The food that is made in Sally's Kitchen is bought through cash donations only, made to the Salvation Army. Some community members do donate directly to Sally's Kitchen with food items of their own.

"We had 'Diane Cleaned Out The Deep Freeze Menu'," Snyder chuckled. "We had two different kinds of soups, hot dogs, egg salad sandwiches and chicken roll-ups. Just oodles of things, just so I can clean out the deep freeze."

Snyder continued to say that they got a big cake from the grocery store, that was donated by a community member.Now, she's looking forward to operating out of the new Salvation Army building.

"The very first one is going to be a fun one. We now have a great big parking lot and we're going to take advantage of it," teased Snyder about the re-opening of Sally's Kitchen in September. "It's going to be a great big street BBQ."
