Pecans Are Coming!

News & Events for Nov. 2018

The Pecan Order Has Been Placed

Our annual pecan fundraiser is about to begin. We are expecting the shipment to arrive the week of Nov. 19. The order includes large whole pecan halves and chopped pecans. The novelty nuts come in gift bags or a sampler tin. Both make a convenient holiday present when you need to come up with a gift quickly. Flavors are roasted & salted pecans, roasted & salted cashews, caramel clusters, and chocolate covered pecans.

A notification will be emailed when the pecans are available. Let the baking begin!

Keeping Your Home Safe - Home Electrical Safety

Tuesday, Nov. 13 @ 6 PM - This session will be led by Stephanie Barney from Lightspeed Electrical. Home electrical safety is especially important for Baby Boomers and empty nesters. As the weather turns cooler, we tend to spend more time indoors and use more electricity. Tips on checking outlets, extension cords, and switches will be addressed in this workshop. Please call 417-334-1418 to register or email
