JB deserves a medal! He was at the Rod and Gun Club at 4 AM (he didn't tell other Rotary members that he was going to be there that early, of course) to start cooking the ribs because he was worried about the rain forecast for later in the day. When I arrived for my 1 PM to 3 PM volunteer shift, the ribs were done including a large batch that had already been delivered to St. Francis House. Normally, the ribs would be done at 4:30 to 5:30 PM. He is amazing. So very thoughtful. Exemplifies #ServiceAboveSelf.
