Larry's LaRue-minations

Free for Easter? Feel free to volunteer

One Christmas season, the editors at the Press-Telegram in Long Beach thought it would be a hoot to send me to various malls and stores to visit Santa, which I did – wearing a leisure suit. I was happening, that year.

Never did get assigned to the Easter Bunny, not that I’m complaining.

As Easter arrives, however, there’s an idea for all of us that have little to do – my bride is out of town, visiting her family – that will make us feel good. Volunteering.

From 2 -4 p.m. on Sunday, at the Memorial Center in Puyallup – 601 North Meridian for you mapquesters – there’s a full dinner being served to poor and homeless families. There will be live music, face-painting for the kids and people shuttling others to and from where ever they’re coming from.

If you know a family in need, let them know about it. If you don’t, but wouldn’t mind spending time helping out, drop by.  I’ll be there, doing whatever I can and looking for column ideas. Feel free to come by and supply one.

We’ll compare leisure suit horror stories.
