This last Friday, I had the pleasure of enjoying a birthday lunch for my dad at McMahon's Family Restaurant with several family members. My dad and two brothers have been having lunch at McMahon's every Friday for four years since my mother passed away. The restaurant has great breakfast and lunch selections and soups that are delicious.

If you have not had the pleasure of dining at McMahon's, now is the time! McMahon's is a family-run business and the matriarch and patriarch of the family, Fran and Joe McMahon, have been faced with some health issues the past several months. They cannot do their catering business, which is a source of income for the family.

I would like to get the word out that this God-following family needs the help of the community. All I am asking is that each of you reading this article enjoy a meal at McMahon's Restaurant each week. They also have take-out, so get your workplace to get an order to go ... it is easy as that!

One plate at a time can assist this great family. Fran has always given back to the community in her endeavors.

Anyone wanting to make a cash donation can do so by sending a donation to Fran McMahon directly at 80 Redway, Grand Island, NY 14072.

No one asked me to do this article. I heard of the McMahon plight and I personally would like the Grand Island community to step up to the plate and enjoy a meal or two at McMahon's and/or make a cash donation payable to Fran McMahon and mail it to their home.

I thank each of you who will take the challenge and help out this Grand Island family!
