Our 4th anniversary and Fran’s 60th birthday celebration week was a hit! Fran was surprised to have a smaller group gather with lobster, steak and a birthday cake-everything was delicious and she was surprised!! Our food donations were over any expectation we could have imagined, thanks to all!! Liberty house was so grateful for the two huge donations.
