Julie Dempster: Thanks for help with cooking school

Julie Dempster

To the Editor:

I have some very special people to thank for their work on the Taste of Home Cooking School at Moffat County High School.

Dixie Hatfield with the Moffat County School District and her staff, who not only worked to get this show running, but were also on duty for the magic show the night before and the four wonderful “Oklahoma!” shows that weekend and countless nights of rehearsal prior.

Jason Steed and Staton Mosbey, the lighting and sound students who have an incredible work ethic and operate with the help of John Allen with Allen Studio. We had absolutely no worries with the electrical systems, which was no small feat considering we had two cook stoves, a refrigerator, microwave, three televisions and a video feed, and sound equipment and lighting cues. These boys have it down to an art.

My courageous volunteers for going above and beyond the call of duty: Renee Campbell, Nancy Bechhold and the amazing Jamie Raehal, who not only volunteered last minute, but took on some impromptu stage help as well.

The kickin’ bag stuffing team who not only were called into action on a Saturday, but knocked out 800 bags with almost 30 items each in roughly five hours.

Moffat County Young Life for taking on the daunting responsibility of parking, keeping track of and delivering our audience members’ vehicles. David Pressgrove tackled the logistics and scored a perfect 10 in the coordinated valet parking event.

And I’ll never forget our emcee, Dr. McKey, who had absolutely no idea what he had gotten himself into. I’m certain he’ll never speak to me again.

Thank you to our audience.

Hope you enjoyed it.
