Coffee Hour Brunch

Sunday’s Coffee Hour Brunch is provided by Joan Krack and hosted by Kathy Girard and Patsy Gorczyca.  Joan moved to Georgia a little over a year ago to live with her son and family.   We are celebrating Joan’s 83rd birthday (April 19), and remembering several of her family members: Nassif and Nellie Masad, mother and father; Charles Pichetto, son;  Syl Krack husband;  and Isabel Britton, sister and her husband, Harry.  Please join us for fellowship and to remember Joan and her sister, Isabel, both of whom were widely known around St. John’s as excellent cooks. 

Sponsor a Coffee Hour: We are asking groups to pick a Sunday and sponsor coffee hour.  Check with your group or guild and let Penny in the office know what Sunday is good for you.  Other groups agreeing to take part in this are the Office Angels, Garden Committee and the Ladies Dinner Night.  Thank you for participating in this important ministry.
