Parents to the rescue…

After the holidays, our freezer was bare, and we needed hospitality items for the SPHS Open House that took place last Thursday. With a whopping 690 guests registered, we needed many platters filled for the evening event. Thanks so much to all our baking volunteers and those who graciously donated local bakery items.
Thanks so much for your overwhelming generosity and making the evening a success!
