From Krista ever-so-politely reminding me regularly to submit my attendance to Angela being so organized so that we handle all money correctly to Sandra always greeting us with a smile (regardless of the craziness that is happening in the office!) Thanks ladies for making the office such a friendly, inviting place! Sloman

~I just want to say what a GREAT time I have had working with all the ladies on the Pack Production Team! All of us, including the kiddos, have had a blast, and I am so glad we did this instead of a traditional fundraiser!!! I cannot wait to see everyone on Friday night! I have teared up more than once with such pride and joy watching these kids showcase themselves. CRE definitely has got talent!!! Jennifer Lott
