We're looking forward to catching up with you!
HUF Reception on Thursday
You are invited to attend a reception celebrating 44 years of Harding University in Florence. This event will also serve as an opportunity to honor Robbie and Mona Shackelford for their many years of service at HUF as they plan to retire at the end of the upcoming spring semester. We are also excited to announce that special guests Sandro Fallani, Silvia Barbieri, and Leda Carrai will be in attendance. Sandro Fallani has served as the Mayor of Scandicci for 10 years and is a friend of HUF. Silvia Barbieri has worked as the HUF secretary for 27 years and Leda Carrai worked as a cook at HUF for 17 years.
This come-and-go reception will take place on Thursday, November 2, from 7-9 p.m. and be held at the Robbins Sanford Grand Hall, located at 118 N Spring St, Searcy, AR 72143.
Please come dressed up to celebrate HUF and some of the people who have made HUF so special over the years. We hope to see you there!
