As part of Supportive Living Week, Staff Appreciation Day was held on Wednesday, April 23rd. Executive Director, Nancy McCaffrey, held a chili cook off for the staff. Eight employees entered the contest that was complete with homemade cornbreads, all the fixings and 3 different cakes for dessert. Everyone voted on their favorites and after lunch, the winners were announced.
1st Place: J’Nice J.
2nd Place: Veronica L.
3rd Place: John R.
Each prize came with a gift card to a western themed restaurant. All staff were allowed to wear jeans and western wear to help get in to the spirit of things.

One of my co-workers has an intense love for the spicy pickled green beans you can buy at the grocery store. As a gift, I took some of my home-grown beans and hot peppers and whipped up a batch myself! Canned in a quart jar, it’s a gorgeous and delicious addition to any gift basket.
