2.) Greetings from the Chair :

Well another month has come and gone fellow Quality associates.

The exciting NCAA women?s and men?s basketball tournaments have come to an end and like everybody else in Ohio the Buckeyes were a surprise make it to the finals!

It was exciting to finally see a women?s team win for the very 1st time undefeated AND 40 victories! Hats off to the #1 Baylor Bears women?s NCAA champs! 1st time ever for either men or women!

If you thought last month?s very exciting presentations from our very own members Sharon Strouth and Randy Stroemer were informational just wait until this month?s presentation from our very own, Caryn Simmons, Quality Manager with General Mills in Caledonia, Ohio. Caryn has worked at several General Mills facilities including: Yoplait yogurt, Green Giant vegetables, food service cereal packaging, IQF frozen rice & pasta, frozen dough, and dry baking mix and the presentation will be very interesting as food is very near and dear to my heart!

Kidding aside, this has always been one of the highlight moments of the year as there are points of interest that is always good to learn as the food industry is becoming very important to the well-being of every American! Be sure to get your reservations called in for the Madison High School Culinary location!

Come join us for delicious food and a great presentation and we?ll also be finalizing our board members for the upcoming year. Please consider stepping up and contributing!

Please get your reservations to Caryn Simmons for another fine meal to be served by the Culinary Arts students at the Ramble Inn in Mansfield Madison High School and excellent fellowship with ALL!
