On April 13, approximately 40 residents and friends visited Lings Chinese Buffet in Lakeland. This was our monthly lunch connoisseurs get-together.
The luncheon was hosted by Sandy and Al Lindke, and we all had an excellent time.
Before the lunch started, Galen Parker was good enough to say grace, while we bowed our heads in a moment of silence.
We got there a little early, but the room was held for us. We passed through the front room, where they had some fish in a small pond (in the center of the room) and proceeded to our tables.
The interior of the restaurant was very nice, and the buffet was excellent. They had salad, soups, main dishes (chicken, chow mein, rice, vegetables and more.)
For dessert, they had several types of melon, ice cream with a few toppings, plus cookies.
We certainly had our fill, and I don’t think anyone went home hungry.
We spent a good hour and a half just mingling and small talk about several subjects.
The lunch connoisseurs will still go on in the summer months, but many of our residents are returning to their other homes that are elsewhere.
