Paul Doucette has been getting up before 4 a.m. all week to feed breakfast to close to 1,000 people in the Habitat for Humanity Carter Work Project in a white tent a chip shot southwest of the Meadows Recreation Centre. One of those guests is former U.S. President Jimmy Carter.
Paul met Mr. Carter Tuesday.
“I was in Grade 10 in 1978 in Albany, New York,” says Paul, the general manager of the Sawmill Banquet Catering Centre. “I never thought I would meet Mr. Carter.
“I told him I always recited the Pledge of Allegiance. Mr. Carter was pleased and asked me to recite it for him.
“So I did.”
