Appreciative staff

Sophie from Thom Anne Sullivan Early Childhood Programs spoiled the staff and volunteers by bringing in home made egg rolls and spanakopita the other day. In case you can’t tell Dianne lives for the days that Sophie makes egg rolls! It is a splurge that the whole staff savors. We have to keep their energy up in the last few weeks of Magic of Christmas, elves work is never done. Thanks Sophie!
