UUCA Members and Friends Coordinate Hope-Hill Teacher Appreciation Breakfast

The annual Teacher Appreciation Breakfast is a traditional part of UUCA’s decades long partnership with Hope-Hill Elementary School. Once again this year, on May 5, Diane Gordon—long time UUCA friend and volunteer at Hope-Hill, and our answer to the Energizer Bunny—coordinated the affair, with the help of other members and friends.

Over 50 well fed faculty and staff participated. A good time was had by all.
