Thanks for dinner

October 15, 2013 

This past Saturday was our homecoming dance at O'Fallon High School. A group of us went to dinner at Olive Garden before we went to the dance.

When it was time for us to get the bill and pay, the waitress told us that a couple sitting at a nearby table paid the entire bill for all eight of us. We asked her who they were so we could thank them, but she said they had already left the restaurant.

We hope the people who paid for us are reading your newspaper because we want them to know how much their generosity meant to us. It was such a nice thing for them to do. We wanted to thank them and to let them know how much we appreciated what they did.
