The first night was hosted by HOH Spanish Teacher Janie Bravo and focused on FOOD, it was a lot of fun and left everyone hungry! Tomorrow night we will meet some of the PEOPLE making a difference in Newburgh and talk about some great book resources, and we will end Friday night with a spotlight on ART! A Recap of the other nights of the week can be found below!
