    I have been working in television for 15 exciting years! I got my start in Chicago – my hometown - as an intern on the “Jerry Springer Show” and as guest co-host on “Face to Face: The Vernon Jarrett Show” (WLS TV).

    Improvisation can be wildly entertaining! Talented actors assume outrageous characters on stage, constructing hilarious scenes off the cuff. Imagine if spirituality were part of the equation, the fuel that gets actors' creative engines purring. Over the Counter Improv (OTC Improv) in Charlotte has mastered the skill of spontaneous dramatizations like the best in the business. The secret ingredient to their on stage genius may be spiritual in nature. Meet the owner and his team.

More than 100 volunteers assembled today to prepare, pack and deliver lunches to more than 500 senior citizens at home and to 200 seniors at adult daycare centers across the Charlotte area.  The volunteers – some from Queens University and West Charlotte High School - braved the heat to get the well-balanced meals to those who can’t get out to buy food and prepare it for themselves.

We followed Joan and Zangel, two first-time volunteers today as they delivered meals along one of the Friendship Trays routes.  The recipients were happy to see them, and many called the deliveries the highlight of their day.

Friendship Trays prepares 11 different types of meals filled with veggies from some 75 Friendship Gardens around the region.  Meals are prepared with special dietary needs in mind: diabetic, vegetarian, low sugar and more.  Area seniors raved about the food, especially prepared for them.  They were glad to enjoy the grub from inside the comfort of their homes on such a hot day.

If you want to join Joan and Zangel on day one of their volunteer journey, check out My Fox Carolinas online at 6 PM and on TV at 10 PM.
