Cinnamon for the Holidays

Workshop in Memory of Co-Worker and Mentor

Dr. Brenda Williams

Join me on November 30, from 5:30 pm to 8:30pm, or December 1, from 9:00 am, to noon for Cinnamon for the Holidays Workshop. During the groundbreaking for the new Ag Auditorium, Dr. Brenda Williams, (former Alachua County FCS Agent) and I discussed the first workshop we wanted to conduct in the new kitchen. Sadly a few months later Brenda was called home. Brenda was a friend and mentor to me. An outstanding Family and Consumer Science Agent who touched the lives of many FCS Agents and individuals she taught. This workshop is in her memory and will feature Brenda’s famous cinnamon rolls as planned along with other holiday baking tips, gifts, and decorative ideas!
