Nine employees of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia were honored this evening (Feb. 13) at the 2014 Employee Appreciation Banquet at the Nazareth Motherhouse.

The annual event drew of a crowd of nearly 130 employees, their guests and Sisters of St. Joseph. The décor for the evening was the tropical islands — representing warmth in contrast to the recent bone-chilling cold — and each table was labeled as a different island paradise.
