Foster will write a thank-you letter to the newspapers (Sky-Hi News and Grand Gazette).
The letter will include our number of boxes sold and a thank-you to buyers.
He will also announce that apples will be delivered near the end of October.
Audrey can send him a copy of last year’s letter as a reference if he wishes.

In August, the club voted by email to spend $20 to book the library room for the peach delivery meeting.

Foster read a thank-you letter to the club from the Silver Spruce seniors.

The club received a donation for the scholarship fund in memory of Ben McClelland.
Foster, would you please send them a thank-you card for their donation?  I forgot to ask!
