Thanks so much for helping to orchestrate yet another successful “First Friday Breakfast” event. It seems that the menu items have been greatly enhanced with quite a few heart-healthy additions. In particular, I was pleased to see the mini-yogurt/granola/strawberry parfait as well as the breakfast burrito choices. What wonderful morning treats! - Doris Parham, Strategic Resource Coordination Team
