It’s a great time of year! The summer crops are still bountiful, exciting new cool weather crops are being planted and the schools are readying to open their doors and welcome our sun-kissed children back to their learning communities. Lots of good, positive energy is in the air.
The DFM will continue our Apple Fundraiser this Saturday. You will be happy to know that this week we will have plenty of the fan favorite Honey Crisp, along with Gala and Early Macintosh, both close 2nd favorites! The apples are mountain fresh and a special tasty snack to include in your child’s school bag. On the lunch box note, don’t forget to check out all of our vendors for that special treat to help your student power through the day!
