From the SNP Staff: I'd like to give a Big Shout OUT to Mr. Landtroop. He hosted one of the monthly nutrition education classes. He had everyone in his class make us Thank You cards. We will miss him!

Thank you to everyone who contributed refreshments for the Retirement Party! And a special thank you to those of you who so generously jumped in to help with set-up and clean-up -- we are grateful for your willingness to help! We are so glad that so many friends could join in celebrating the many contributions that Ana, Pam, and Susie have made to the hundreds of students they have served over the years! --Sunshine Committee
