2014 SPRING EDITION - COMMENTS
Some "THANK YOUs" are in order: First to our incredible chef. Despite a very challenging week, Chef Scott Benjamin provided a wonderful meal to remember. Top notch and delicious, the cuisine delighted our guests - which delighted us! Second, to our talented/accomplished musicians who played during the reception and as guests were seated at the tables - the Tallgrass Trio, comprised of Susan Maxwell (oboe), Kristin Mortenson (Flute) and Susan Gartner (clarinet). They sounded like a mini symphony creating an atmosphere of both sophistication and leisure. We were honored to have these outstanding professionals working with us.
The State Officers of Future Farmers of America helped us out again serving tables. Enthusiastic, courteous, and hardworking, these young adults will be wonderful leaders out there in our world! We appreciate working with them and wish them the best. Four members of the KSU Farm Bureau Collegiate group volunteered for their first time at our event. They, like the FFA students, were extremely pleasant to work with and were willing to do whatever was needed. One of our favorite parts of hosting a Feast, is getting to work with young people like these! Their enthusiasm is contagious! Thank you all!
Though my daughter was unable to assist with the Feast this year, two of her closest friends helped out. Megan Whitesell even took Friday off of work to drive out from Kansas City to help with all of the set up. Her bright smile and unwavering support was and always is priceless! Libby Uthoff Stratton also helped set up on Saturday. Went home and came back that evening to greet people with a glass of wine at our reception table. Loved working with both these beautiful young women! Thanks so much!
