Community appreciation dinner to be held April 26

Culinary Careers student Marissa Cochran practices her culinary skills in anticipation of the Grant Career Center Community Appreciation Dinner.
Celebrating the spirit of the wonderful community which we serve, the public is invited to the Grant Career Center for the Annual Community Appreciation Dinner, sponsored by the Culinary Careers Department, to be held from 5 – 7 p.m. Saturday, April 26 in the Career Center cafeteria.

Staff and students will work together to prepare a Ham and Chicken Buffet that includes chef’s vegetables, numerous salads, dinner rolls, homemade desserts, and beverages.

Tickets are $5 per person and can be purchased from past and present Board of Education members or Grant Career Center staff members.

Tickets are also available at the Career Center and will be available at the door the evening of the dinner.

To ensure a successful dinner, Culinary Career instructors Ray and Gary Forsee utilize this opportunity to teach banquet skills and direct students in behind the scenes activities such as planning, ordering, cooking, baking, slicing, dicing, presenting, and serving.

Students will showcase skills that have been perfected throughout their training by decorating tables, organizing dining stations, and completing all aspects of banquet work.

Junior Culinary Careers Instructor Gary Forsee states, “It’s an excellent opportunity for the students to get first-hand experience with mass food production and be a part of a great community project at the same time.”

Guests may also view program projects and student work which will be displayed. The Greenhouse will also be open from 5-7 p.m. for your spring gardening needs. Come join us as we celebrate our community spirit!
