THANKS TO OUR CHEFS As we wind down the program year, it’s time to remember and thank the many Holy Family chefs who cook for our community. First, many thanks to Neel and Kay Storr for the beautiful and delicious Easter hospitality hour they hosted. The EC101 class is especially grateful to Mike Hodges, who prepared lunches for their gatherings. Finally, thanks to everyone who cooked for the monthly potlucks and hosted hospitality hours throughout the year. We appreciate your sharing your gifts and feeding us!
