Weekly News for March 14

Easter Morning Breakfast update: Lots of Purple House bagels on order, a few pounds of bacon in the freezer, plenty of cream cheese in refrigerator. Ellen is bringing juice and Gail is bringing a breakfast entrée . Ellen has also offered to help with clean up! So, you ask…..”What can I do? A fruit bowl and a couple more entrees would be very good. I’ll be prepping the bacon and setting up on Sat. Morning March 31st. If you want to prepare your dish then we can do that. Even if anyone wants to bring eggs for scrambling that would work. Thank you, Jeanne
