Thank you to Kelly Anderson for bringing two different kinds of baked goodies for our staff last week, and chips and salsa today for Cinco de Mayo. These treats were delicious and very much appreciated!
We also send a big THANK YOU to the Prabhu family for treating our staff to a wonderful samosa experience. They were kind enough to bring us 200 onion samosas and four gallons of mango lassi, so everyone got to enjoy a taste of India. Thank you for your generosity, Prabhu family!
