Don has been working at the bakery for a while now and most customers will recognize his bright smile when they come into the bakery. I can not pinpoint the specific amount of time he has been here because he kind of “comes and go’s”. He is an opera singer and has to leave us often for performances all over the country. When he leaves, we are all very sad to see him go but are so happy that he is doing so well pursuing his dream. When he comes back, as he just did this week, we are happy that he can step back into the bakery and it is as if he never left! Welcome back Don!
