Blogathon for Pearlington

Pearl's Cafe

This is where volunteers gather in Pearlington for the evening meal. Now that the Red Cross and AmeriCorps have left, feeding the masses is a real cooperative effort. Groups of volunteers sign up to take turns cooking. Often, it’s burgers and beans, but sometimes the meals get quite elaborate. Various churches have sponsored fish fries, crawfish boils, spaghetti dinners, and all sorts of treats in the now infamous tent known as Pearl’s Café.

Recently, the tent has been air conditioned, making it one of the most desirable locals in Pearlington. I’m not sure who is responsible, but I have no doubt the air conditioning was contributed by some people who’d gotten their fill of working up a sweat by swatting flies and mosquitoes away from their food.


  • Great job on the 'thon sweetie! I wish I'd have know y'all were going to do this a little sooner but congrats on a job well done! :) *big hugs*
