March 24, 2011: We celebrate our 8th year in operation with our Annual Meeting (we were incorported in March of 2003). Incoming board President Angela Lordi opened with talk of vision and thanks. The meeting was then hilighted by a terrific talk entitled "Hospitality, the Gift that Keeps on Giving" by Reverend Karen B. Montagno, Interim Priest at St. Cyprian’s Church and Interim Director of Congregational Resources & Training at the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. We shared food and rekindled our friendships with supporters and community leaders. At the end, outgoing board President Rev. Lydia Hews bid a fond farewell, and we talked about the coming year.
