Four Chefs and a Lady! Nope, it's not a new movie starring Hugh Grant. It's the name of the team that provided a very successful lunch to approximately 30 guests in the dining hall at Potomac Towers on Tuesday, April 30. Our guests feasted on Wayne Dennis' delicious spaghetti and meat sauce.  It was fantastic!   Their meal include a fresh salad, tea, warm baguette bread and a choice of lemon or chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. A huge THANK YOU goes to Anne Morin, Wayne, Frank Bushey, Ken Brown, and Jerry Bock for this wonderful Saint John's Outreach Ministry.  The guests were delighted with their meal.  Time spent in this endeavor was 4 hours, which can be reduced now that experience has been had. The expense was minimal. The smile on our guests faces: PRICELESS!  Our next lunch is scheduled for Tuesday, July 30.
