Karen and Jim along with HPN members Naomi and Ken are leading a 3 week series on Home Improvement and Hospitality! They focus each week on practical, hands-on steps to fixing your electricity, plumbing, broken hinges, cracked wood, etc. – anything you want to learn about how to fix anything in your home. And then serve dinner and give tips on how to be hospitable to your guests! Classes are held November 4th, 11th, and 18th!
Each week they answer questions on how to fix things, what tools to use, and when to call a professional! This class also focuses on helping participants to ignite or expand their gift of hospitality! We want our community to have wonderful homes and huge hearts!
