September has been a busy month for us. Once again the NC Apple Festival continues to be one of our largest fundraisers with a profit of $1,063.27. We will be selling the sassafras and sugar free remaining at the soup/bake sale. Thanks to all the members and non-members who had a lot of time and sweat equity in this event; also, the monetary donations and the donation of the apple sauce. The marketing gentlemen from Knouse Foods stopped by our booth at the festival.
The September meeting with Nina Myers was very informative and heart wrenching to realize the degree of hunger and homeless in the area. With this knowledge we can focus on ways to help REDCAP better service these individuals thru our donations and volunteering. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions please bring to a meeting for discussion. Please plan to attend the October general meeting about the Homeless Students in the WSSD presented by Amy Gross and Tom Bernheimer.
Please remember the Soup/Bake Sale on Election Day sale November 8th. This is another huge fundraiser for the club. Activity at the polls will be very high so the potential to make a substantial amount of money for our projects is there. Let’s take advantage of this opportunity by making extra batches of soup and bakes goods.
