Happy Holidays from HDT

Earlier this December, we hosted our annual Grateful Gathering and Bites Bar & Grill, just south of Pine River. It’s a moment where we pause before the busy holiday season and take the time to reflect on the past year and ponder the future.

This gathering was a bit bittersweet as we bid a fond farewell to three of our favorite coworkers, Bob McLean, Kathy Hoefs, and Janis Redfield.

Kathy will be leaving us to work on her growing event center with her husband, Marlon. Bob, a Resilient Living Campus mainstay since the start, is retiring. Though mid-2020, he’ll take up the mantle of District Governor for Rotary District 5580 (accompanied by his wife, Terri). Janis and her husband, Robert, are snow-birding south to Florida to soak up rays, walk on beaches, and live life to the fullest (in sandals). We wish them the best.
