Hospitality is the focus
Hospitality is a human phenomenon that is practiced by cultures all over the world. It is the generous and friendly treatment of visitors and guests. A special event, defined as a planned occasion or activity, and hospitality go hand in hand.

The annual Herb Harvest Fall Festival was celebrated during the first week of October, beginning on Thursday night, with the Sumptuous Herb Harvest Supper. Dr. Godwin-Charles Ogbeide and his wife, Bukola Ogbeide  prepared the African dishes that were served for the supper. This year the focus of the festival was on the crops and the herbs of coastal Africa which are also enjoyed in the Ozark Mountains. Many friends and employees of the Ozark Folk Center detoured from their regular routines to participate in this hospitable special event.

The entire Skillet crew, along with members of the HSA-Ozark Unit, prepared for the herb event and transformed the restaurant’s dining room into a feasting hall while continuing to serve our regular guests. Members of the Ozark Folk Center’s administration team and maintenance department volunteered to stay late to help serve the supper and clean up after the party. Security and bus drivers took care of transporting and individual care of guests. The list of people who served above and beyond the call of duty is long and I thank each of you for contributing to the success of the Herb Harvest Fall Festival.

This Herb Harvest Fall Festival was one of the very best, hospitable herb events yet. Next year we will be celebrating the herbs and foods of the British Isles and the Ozark Mountains on October 2, 3 and 4, 2014.
