Family Letter 2023

Dear Friends, My name is Jedidiah (Jed) Templin. I am Mrs. Hanes’ oldest grandchild. My entire life has revolved around the cookie business. My mom, Mona, ran the business for 40 years. From the very beginning, I have been a part of the business. I was the first official “Cookie taster.” When I was around 7 years of age I was waiting on customers and putting together Moravian Stars for people. At 8 years of age, I began doing the radio commercials that my mom wrote for me. I must have sounded really cute because people still come into the...

Family Letter 2022

Dear Friends, It is the year 2022 and I am 90 years old! Oh my goodness! How did that happen? I have seen so many changes. Can you imagine growing up with no indoor plumbing? No air conditioning? No telephone? I mentioned in last year’s letter that I am in the process of writing a book about my life. I have kept a diary for over 65 years, so I had a lot of information to use for inspiration. Daughter Mona was going to be my editor, but when the book got to be over 500 pages, she found it...

Family Letter 2021

Dear Friends, What a year!I recall thinking back in early 2020, “Thank goodness this Covid thing is happening now — not during our busy holiday season.” However, we all know how that turned out! It certainly was a challenging year. Like so many other businesses, the only thing we knew to do was “improvise” and simply take it one day at a time. Fortunately, we were able to keep working and never had to lay off any employees. To keep our employees safe, we reorganized our baking and break room areas to accommodate social distancing requirements. We reconfigured our sales...

Family Letter 2020

Hello, Friends—both old and new. I hope this past year for you has been one full of joy and thanksgiving. For myself, the previous 12 months have blessed me with an even greater understanding of the importance of family, friendship, and fellowship. The Problem Was All in My HeadWhen you get to be 87 years old, you’re not surprised by the development of a new physical ailment. You either find treatment for it or learn to live with it (or, let’s be honest, a bit of both).Emotional or mental ailments, on the other hand, can really catch you off guard....

Family Letter 2019

Family Letter 2019

Well hello my friends. It has been a year of many exciting changes. Grandson Jedidiah joined us in the business last year and he has been very busy updating some areas of our business that needed a bit of “sprucing up.” Jed’s mother (Ramona) is so grateful that someone else is now in charge of all the technical “stuff.” (Perhaps you can tell by her terminology (stuff) that we all are a bit relieved that Jed has taken over those duties.) Jed is also responsible for the design of the new shipping box we are using for our 14 oz....
