  • As we look at self-esteem when talking about assets this month, let me reflect one more time on the Community Asset Awards.
    The night wouldn’t be possible without my husband Chad seeing to some last minute details. It never fails that I have forgotten something on the kitchen counter and he has to scramble at the last minute. Yes, it happens each year.
    Then there are great people like Peggy Pendergast, Jordan George and Ben Schilling and the beyond over the moon staff of the Best Western Hilltop House Hotel.
    The beautiful setting and stellar desserts they displayed were second to none. The attention to detail and the superior staff allow the event to shine.
