Message from the President

 
Welcome back everyone to a busy year of fundraising, cool and interesting meetings, helping people in our community, and coming together as a club to bond with everlasting friendships.

Our first meeting of the year will be held at the Red Land Library on Monday, September 15, 2014 at 6:30 PM. Remember we are starting an hour earlier. We will have our annual covered dish dinner. So, get your favorite recipe out and start planning. Please bring your favorite dish or dessert for all to enjoy. Remember to bring your own place setting!! I hope you will all bring a guest and if so bring a place setting for her. Come hear about some exciting new projects that Vicki Trimmer, our state President, has challenged us to support.

The apple butter is made and thank you so much Rita and Dale Kahler for offering your home and beautiful outside area to make the apple butter. We had a nice group of members and husbands to help and having three kettles was a plus. We started around 8:00 am and I believe we were done around 2:00 pm. Thanks to everyone who helped with our major fundraiser.

The New Cumberland Apple Festival will be held at Borough Park on Saturday, September 27. Plan to come and enjoy the day and also help us sell our delicious apple butter
