A Beautiful Day for a Potluck
The TPA Potluck on March 12 was the perfect day to meet new friends and enjoy a delicious lunch in beautiful surroundings. Friendships were formed, ideas were shared, and the commitment to support our children and the community is stronger than ever. Thank you so much to Stefania Rovelli for opening her home and hosting a wonderful event.
