Many thanks to our new Hospitality co-chairs, Jen Hawkins and Colleen Suhanosky, for a luncheon to remember. Winston Flowers donated beautiful flowers for our teacher gifts, Table Toppers donated table linens and napkins, and Rifrullo donated the use of plates and silverware along with delicious food. This made the luncheon our greenest yet. Many thanks to parents Charlene Gray and Rasheeda Clayton for staying the entire day to keep the luncheon organized and orderly, and more thanks to all the families that contributed food. The staff loved it all, and they are asking for recipes!
