It’s been quite a day for the staff at the Fredericton Soup Kitchen.
After Sunday's morning break in, they felt pretty down.
As a matter of fact, I believe they were too disgusted to tell the media what has just happen?
But when you have a nosy blogger around?
Well, it’s pretty difficult to keep a story like this one silent.
I blogged the story Sunday afternoon and I was told that I should wait till the story appears in the Irving newspaper.
Well? That’s not my style and if they believe that I’m going to remain silent on this one?
Well, it’s not going to happen.
I was surprised the story wasn’t in the Irving newspaper for two days.
They did have the story on today’s front page.
ATV News with Monica Verma covered the story last night and things began to unfold.
This morning, I listen to 92.3 FRED fm and boy did they ever go overboard.
They asked the public for money and money the Soup Kitchen got.
I don’t usually go there at noon but this time around? I had to go and see if there was any action?
Action???? All kinds!!!
The phone rang while I was there and the staff seem happy.
George Piers told me that he was overwhelm by the support of the public. You could tell that he was very emotional.
A call came from out west after they read the story on my blog and the money is on its way!
Other calls came from a big company from Ontario.
While in George’s office? Someone walked in with an envelope with a check inside.
The phone rang and rang.
While leaving the office, I bumped into a reporter from CBC.
All the media are here I guess?
I made a stopover at 92.3 FRED FM and met for the first time the woman that was leading the troops to help the Soup Kitchen.
Juanita McKnight is doing a wonderful job and she has one day and a half left to fill the pot.
They pray to collect $15,000!!!!
I bumped into my old friend the parking Commissionaire whom I blogged last week as the weapon of mass destruction in the Capital because he quit smoking….lol…
He told me that many people are asking him where the 92.3. fm station was located?
People wish to help and this is a good thing.
Later on in the day, I walked in the Soup Kitchen and noticed George Piers with the cell phone in his hand.
He told me the phone has never stop ringing all day long.
92.3 Fred Fm was pushing the issue and George was busy answering the phone.
He told me a woman called and said that she has heard the story of a small child giving all his allowance to the Soup Kitchen so therefore she believe that if a young child can give his allowance?
She can give $1,000!!!
While chatting with George the phone ran again and after a lengthly chat?
George told me it was religion from Nacawick.
The individual was going to chat with his parishioners to see what can be done to help?
My god? That area has went through a very hard time during the past year so they know how much the Fredericton Soup Kitchen has done for the poor.
Just tonight while going into a store. People would comment while seeing the sad front page story!
I asked if the Irvings offered to help? I was told in a very direct ay that the Irvings are helping every day!!!
Maybe the Irvings are not that bad???
I also heard some interesting stories about the Jerks who broke in but I will remain silent on this one. < for once >…lol…Just tonight?
I heard that someone was arrested and the name just doesn’t ring a bell but I did hear his name in the past.
I can honestly say that George looks much better than Sunday.
Yes, people do have a heart and lets see what’s going to happen in this awful situation?
Stay tune for the latest in this blog!!!!

WHY WOULD THE IRVINGS WISH TO DESTROY THIS HISTORICAL SITE????
Historic N.B. mansion still standing, for now
Last Updated Wed, 08 Mar 2006 19:05:20 EST
A historic mansion at a private school near Saint John, N.B., has been saved temporarily from the wrecker's ball.
Lawyers for Rothesay-Netherwood private school promised not to allow the demolition of South House, which was built in the 1850s, until a court hearing to determine the fate of the mansion proceeds next week.
The controversy has pitted two of the province's wealthiest tycoons, both alumni of the elite school, against each other.
J.K. Irving of the Irving industrial empire is on the school's executive committee, which voted unanimously last week to demolish the building.
But Derek Oland, chairman of Moosehead Breweries, is leading the campaign to save the historic site.
"It's a terrible example of administration that a school would tear down a 156-year-old building and turn off people who have thought a lot about the school," Oland said.
The three-storey mansion, the last of the school's original buildings, is on Heritage Canada's list of the 10 most endangered buildings.
But the school says it's too expensive to maintain, and applied to the Town of Rothesay for a demolition permit on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, lawyers for the South House Restoration Committee applied for an injunction to stop the demolition.
During an afternoon court hearing, however, Warwick Gilbert, representing the school's executive commitee, agreed to the halting of any demolition efforts until the case goes to court on Monday.
Gilbert stressed, though, that the hearing shouldn't be delayed because the school wants to tear down the building next week during the March break.
The private school's headmaster, Paul Kitchen, says he's not worried that students might try to stop the demolition.
"If the demolition happens, it's as safe as it possibly can be. I mean safety's pretty fundamental."

ASK AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU; SEEK, AND YOU
WILL FIND; KNOCK, AND IT WILL BE OPENED TO YOU.
( LUKE 11:9-10 *NKJV )
Those are the words of our Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus
also said, "IF YOU ABIDE IN ME, AND MY WORDS
ABIDE IN YOU, YOU WILL ASK WHAT YOU DESIRE,
AND IT SHALL BE DONE FOR YOU." ( JOHN 15:7 )
Now these verses do not mean that everything we
may ask for will be given to us, but do mean that if it is
God's Will for us it will happen! After all we may ask
for something that would hurt us in the end, for we
have no way of knowing the future.
So when you pray do not be afraid to ask God for
something that you desire, knowing that He who knows
all is looking out for you. For God has said; THEN YOU
WILL CALL UPON ME AND COME AND PRAY TO ME,
AND I WILL LISTEN TO YOU. YOU WILL SEEK ME AND
FIND ME WHEN YOU SEEK ME WITH ALL YOUR
HEART. ( JEREMIAH 29:12-13 )
Also do not think that God has abandoned you if a prayer
isn't answered. After all, in time, you may look back on
that prayer request and say "Thank God, He Didn't Answer
Therefore Charles, never lose hope when you pray
for it is written, THE EFFECTIVE, FERVENT PRAYER OF
A RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILS MUCH. ( JAMES 5:16 )
So; PRAY CONTINUALLY; GIVE THANKS IN ALL
CIRCUMSTANCES, FOR THIS IS GOD'S WILL FOR YOU
IN CHRIST JESUS. Amen. ( 1 THESSALONIANS 5:17-18 )
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen

The campaign to help the Soup Kitchen is on. I like the way the hosts are asking people to help over the radio. I'm going to go down and take a picture. I guess they have a donation box in their studio.
