JOE HOLLAND after many years of dedicated service as a manager and sound person, among other jobs has decided it was time to retire from the Coffee House. He is still going to continue helping us this season with the typing of the calendar, but felt it was time for him to move on to devote more time to his musical endeavors. We express our deepest appreciation to Joe for all his years of service and we know that he will be missed around the Coffee House. We hope to see Joe at some events in the near future.
DR. JEFF NESTA worked for many years behind the scenes doing our weekly voice mail and volunteering. Jeff's work schedule has made it difficult for him to continue the job, so regretfully he had to retire at the start of this season. We thank Jeff for all of his time and his faithfulness in getting the voice mail up every Wednesday of the Season.
