Dori Heck was a small beach town girl from Los Angeles living in New York City when she decided to move to Massillon. “I honestly had no idea what I was getting involved in,” Heck recalls of the decision to move to her husband’s hometown in 2001. “I knew I wanted to have more than one kid and wanted to stay home with them. Massillon allowed us to do that. It was lot cheaper than New York City.”
The 2016 Tri-County Restaurant Association Scholarships & Community Harvest Celebrity Cuisine Donation were presented at the general membership and board meeting and luncheon in July at Kozmo’s Grille.
