Head Start: Harcatus
Walking into the fellowship hall last Friday, in Denison Ohio, was seriously impressive. The site itself took my breath away. In fact, the day was one of excellence from beginning to end....... before the participants arrived the tables were already covered in spirited table clothes and every spot was marked with a gift bag of goodies. (I learned at noon that a local restaurant had donated an appetizer certificate for everyone on the staff, to the tune of $700 and that was just the beginning.) When the participants arrived they were greeted by one of the most delicious breakfast meals possible -- including piping hot cinnamon rolls and the juiciest of fresh pineapple and those are just the highlights I remember. As an ice-breaker, each person in attendance was assigned the task of locating the recipient of a hand painted and personalized ornament. There were door prizes AND gift certificates donated from through out the community. After all of the ornaments were exchanged it was my turn t0 get underway. I have to say that the reception I was given was stellar, beyond compare. I suppose when you're surrounded by excellence you exude excellence. What an amazing way to start the day.
