Kudos to the Hospitality team
The hospitality team has outdone themselves again! Throughout the two weeks of tech week FOW served 580 separate meals at 8 different times.
47 Friends of Will contributed food. Two groups led by Dee Cipov served 130 meals; an Exchange Club group chaired by Terry Hawkings provided 60 meals and a Rotary Club group led by Terri Sim served 40 meals. Other FOW who hosted meals are Kris Blanchard, Martha Langowski, Bea Hoffmann, Mary Alice Anderson, Caroline van Schaik, John and Grace Marter, Kathy and Greg Peterson, Debbie Sheets, Ray and Carolyn Felton, Pat Berkley, Bob Hawkings. Guest hosts Heidi Ryan, Margie Glynn and GRSF staff Lee Gundersheimer and Marci Franklin, offered help at the last minute when we really needed it. Thank you!
Karin and Jim Worthley, on-site hospitality chairs and coordinators, helped at every meal and coordinated in-between meal needs. A HUGE thank you goes to Jean Hayes for extensive months-long menu and logistics planning.
Special thanks to
