Hello bakers, soldiers, etc.-
As many of you know, Fran stepped down as the organizer of OHBakes after much thought & prayer, and turned over leadership to two capable women, Kelli Norris (myself) and Kris Knisely.
Fran is spending increasingly more time at the Family Ministry Center, in the Clark-Fulton neighborhood of Cleveland, http://outreachconnections.org/bsfmc/ and between this and her regular job, she felt it time to let someone else take us forward.
Kris got involved with OHBakes when she read about Fran in the paper and was inspired to join. She is a VERY part time realtor with time on her hands, so this is perfect. She had a nephew who served in Iraq, saw how hard it was on her sister and decided she needed to do something somehow. Kris has a very soft spot for soldiers and their huge sacrifice, like all of us. She live in Columbus and have a great husband and two grown kids.
As for myself, a friend gave me the info for OHBakes one day and I loved the organization from the start! Soldiers & Veterans have a soft spot in my heart because my step-dad is one so I’ve grown up a nice chunk of my life around Veterans as well as a significant number of guys I graduated with are in the service now! I also live in the Columbus area and spend my time between work, church, taking online courses, and spending time with my boyfriend and dog!
We're looking forward to this awesome journey with you guys!
If anybody ever has any questions, wants to bake, or has a soldier for us to bake for, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Thank you & God Bless,
