Community: Gleason\'s New Retirement Plan
Tim Gleason is always a good sport about doing community events and he proved that again today.  Having never worked in the food industry before today (apparently he was busy with hockey as a teenager) Tim showed that he is a quick learner off the ice as well.

Tim took part in the 10th Annual Dine Out for Kids benefiting Communities in Schools of Wake County.  50 area restaurants will donate a portion of their proceeds from Tuesday’s breakfast, lunch and dinner to CIS Wake.  The LM Restaurant Group owns eight local restaurants that are partnered with Dine Out, including all six local Carolina Ale House locations. 

Tim was at the Carolina Ale House in Cary for lunch today.  Tim was only asked to greet tables and deliver drinks but he attacked waiting tables like he does the ice.  After five minutes, he was writing down orders, placing them in the computer, even discussing things with the kitchen staff.

Tim was happy to sport an Ale House name badge and apron (though he did make fun of me for not updating him to a #6 jersey yet…my bad Tim…our department has not received a new set yet…he promises to keep #6 for as long as possible though). 

After his “shift” was done, Tim went around with Steve, the district manager, to all tables to thank everyone for participating in Dine Out for Kids.  Of course Tim took time to sign autographs as well.

All of our players are community focused, but Tim is proving to be a leader on and off the ice as he is happy to help with all of our community activities. 

Communities in Schools is a great local organization that provides tutorial assistance to hundreds of Wake County students.  In conjunction with CIS Wake, the Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation has sponsored “Hurricanes Academy” at Walnut Terrace since 2002.  For more information on Communities In Schools of Wake County or Dine Out for Kids, visit www.ciswake.org
