Earlier in the week I had the opportunity to take part in a meeting with the Lebanon Chamber of Commerce.  After the meeting was over, one gentleman who was there started talking about an organization that I had never heard of.  Operation Barbecue Relief came to be in 2011 as a response to the effects of the devastating tornado that leveled the town of Joplin, Missouri.  I love stories that build, and those that display how people come together to make a difference in the lives of others, especially in the wake of disaster.
