Helping Hands gets hungry crowd

The large turnout at Thursday’s Taste of Ennis had staff and board members from Helping Hands scrambling to accommodate attendees as the event got underway.
“We had to put up extra tables and we almost ran out of food,” said Judi Hejny, executive director of Helping Hands of Ennis.

Although she said she was nervous about pulling off the fundraiser in her first year as executive director of Helping Hands, it went even better than she expected. Hejny said she and all of the board members agreed that Taste of Ennis was a success. The energy level of the crowd really impressed her, she said.

“We fit a lot of fun into an hour and a half,” Hejny said.

For $10, individuals could get a plate to fill with samples from a wide variety of restaurants in Ennis. The Knights of Columbus Hall was filled with the aromas of the cuisine, the sounds of the band Treadaway and Friends and the fellowship of the community. Throughout the night, items from the Helping Hand’s thrift store were raffled off.
