Happy Dorm Parents' Day

Our regular dorm staff meeting is held Friday mornings at 8:30 am, usually in one of the dorms. But today, our school director asked to see us first in the boardroom. We assumed he had an announcement pertinent to the dorm staff so we gathered outside the room. At the appointed time, he let us in and to say we were stunned is an understatement! The tables were set with goblets, plates and candles, roses were at every dorm mom's place, music was playing in the background and a slide show of dorm pictures was being shown on the screen. The banner on one wall said "Happy Dorm Parents' Day"! We were seated by our name plates and feasted on pancakes, banana bread, fresh fruit and scrambled eggs. By our plates were notes of encouragement written from our students. The director kept taking pictures of the awed looks on our faces but would not divulge who had put this together. Those involved want to remain anonymous and so they will! But if any one reading this blog was one of the people involved, please know that you are greatly appreciated for your thougtfulness!
