Apples for Apps

Thank you for supporting our first school fundraiser for the year. We were so pleased with how many families participated. Over 100 boxes were sold and it turns out if we had ordered extra we could have sold more. Those who purchased apples were pleased with how “crisp and delicious” the Okanagan products turned out to be! We can’t wait until next year!
