Brother Kenneth and the BOM NRC Enrichment team were hard at work earlier in the week making cinnamon rolls for our Nurses! Brother shared his famous recipe with Julie and team, and the results did not disappoint! These yummy treats were handed out on the Nurses Week Snack Cart Wednesday.

They handed them out to the team today, and our Nurses were so touched by the thoughtful gesture!
