Von Flake (top left) and a few volunteers clean up after the Dinner Bell Outreach at 1st. Congregational UCC

A big part in the creation of EverettWablog is to focus on the positive side of the Everett community and to bring light upon all aspects of our city’s people, events and things that inspire or make us simply think. Sometimes not all things turn out good but everything has an influence which I believe shifts our perceptions and can make things better. There are so many people that I have met in Everett that are shining stars. They have helped me change for the better and I love to share what they are about.

It’s 5:00 on a Thursday night. Von Flake is leading his team of dinner bell troops in the kitchen of First Congregational UCC of Everett.  Every Thursday he and a few volunteers choose a complete balanced menu with dessert included. Tonight and every Thursday he will lead in feeding the homeless and hungry citizens of Everett. Read more »
