    Winter is just about to arrive, the best time for soups, stews and comfort food.  Over 120 members attended our 2017 Fall Conference on November 17th & 18th.  Friday’s Vendor Exhibits boasted 50 booths with over 60 vendors showing their newest products to entice our customers.  There were so many great new foods, I’m sure many schools will be featuring these new items soon!

 Our show was followed by an engaging speaker, Dr. Gerri King, who spoke about creating a blame-free and gossip-free workplace. She was funny and loaded with good information that our members enjoyed learning about. We ended the evening with a delicious “tailgate style” buffet and carnival games. Our generous vendors donated prizes for our raffle that were drawn from the carnival tickets received.   All of your favorite industry members generously have their time to run the carnival booths. Everyone had a great time, and we raised $100 for the School Nutrition Foundation in memory of our good friend Phil Dallon. Iris Nelson blew her whistle at this “CAKE WALK” fundraiser and encouraged everyone to join the event!  
  The winner of the Cake Decorating contest and recipient of a $50 Amazon Gift Card was Morgan Trahan. Her beautiful cake was truly a work of art!  
 Saturday was a great day with keynote Frank Kitchen and his LIVING FRESH presentation! A variety of education sessions followed with hands on, recipe ideas, leadership, boosting sales, procurement and more. Twenty-four members attended the Nutrition 101 class and will receive credits towards earning SNA Certification. All in all, it was a great weekend!
