A message from Gina Johnson, Founder & Executive Director
Dear Proud Parents,
I love when I can tell you about some of our amazing adult children who are doing good things in our world.
I know the last time I told you about my dear friend, dear Parker Bradshaw and his amazing Parker’s Pastries
at the Whole Grain Bread Company (1244 S Val Vista Dr, Mesa, AZ 85204). He is there every Mon, Wed. and Friday from 10 am – 2 pm if you’d like some of his mouth-watering pastries!
Now I want to tell you about my dear friend, Hannah Blair, who makes HANNAH’S BANANA BREAD at Sassy’s Café
(located at 4210 E Main St, Mesa, AZ 85205).
Hannah bakes the bread on Tuesdays and the bread is ready to purchase at 1 pm.
Also – I am bursting with pride and wanted to tell you that our wonderful “Hip Hop Homies with Extra Chromies” will be in TV this Sunday morning!
The show will air on BYUtv Sunday, October 3, 2021 at 11:00 a.m.
I promise you will love seeing so many of our kids dance and share their talents. Hip Hop Homies was created by Carol Tingey who loves our kids with all her heart. Hope you can tune in.
With much love,
(aka Gina Johnson)
