Thanks especially to food coordinator Paula Marchese; House Manager Ed Deller; staff members Brandon Fagan, Emma Barry, Brock Tjosvold, Carol Williams and Sundae Hodge; home hospitality co-chairs Donna Anderson and Karen Ruganis; and the throngs of volunteers (to be named in a future article) who so generously gave of their time, food, extra tables, and smiles to welcome our guests. Thanks also to Rev. Lane Campbell and Rev. Michelle Yates for enriching worship; Rev. Lane, Theo Munson, Elizabeth Osta, and Karen Dau for workshop presentations; and Michael Scott for skillfully introducing our Hope Jones organ to the gathered community.
