EDWARDS – “I don’t do much,” said the mom. “I raise my three children and volunteer.”

As a mom who volunteers, I can vouch that she is doing much more than “not much.”Without volunteers, the Taste of Berry Creek fundraiser couldn’t happen – a lot of things wouldn’t happen. Organizing hundreds of people to create a successful event isn’t easy, but throw together ambitious mothers, energetic students and a faculty that just doesn’t quit, and success is inevitable.Without volunteers, the Taste of Berry Creek fundraiser couldn’t happen – a lot of things wouldn’t happen.

Organizing hundreds of people to create a successful event isn’t easy, but throw together ambitious mothers, energetic students and a faculty that just doesn’t quit, and success is inevitable.The Taste of Berry Creek brings out the families of the middle-schoolers for an evening of fun and food. The gym is turned into a rec room of sorts, filled with foosball, pool, miniature golf and carnival games.

The lobby of Berry Creek Middle School becomes a giant potluck, with the mothers serving up home-cooked favorites.No one is left out.

The most wonderful part of the evening is the feel of community. Students, parents and faculty all get down to the basics in life – eating good food, chatting and having fun. After all, everyone, no matter their native language, understands what “fiesta” means.
