Family Letter 2007

Family Letter 2007

Dear Friends, Well it’s been another exciting year for the Mrs. Hanes Moravian cookie clan. My husband Travis and I turned 75 years old. We continue to enjoy good heath and we stay very busy. I love to work in my garden and Travis enjoys helping me. However he is getting a little weary of my recent fascination for BIG ceramic pots. “Alright now Evva, decide where you want this thing because it is not going to EVER move again!” Our weekly family dinners with our friends (at least 23 at a time) continue to fill me with warmth and...

Family Letter 2006

Dear Friends, I hope you have had a happy and healthy year. Good health is such a wonderful blessing. Travis and I have been very fortunate in that respect. We are 74 years young and stay very active. We work in our flower garden, grow all our vegetables, run the senior citizen exercise classes at our church, and I cook once or twice a week for my family and friends. There are always at least 24 people at my table. (See photo.) I also finished (finally) my second cookbook. It is called “Supper’s At Six-Second Seating”. It will be available...

Family Letter 2005

Dear Friends, Greetings from my family and all the folks at Mrs. Hanes’ Moravian Cookies. What a year! Once again, we have been blessed by some national publicity. In November 2004, Al Roker of “Roker on the Road” featured our bakery. It was quite thrilling! We consider ourselves so fortunate that our little bakery in the middle of nowhere (that’s actually part of the directions to our bakery) continually receives the recognition of programs like the Food TV Network. However, in all honesty, I must humbly but proudly admit our cookies do make us a rather unique company. We may...

Family Letter 2004

Dear Friends, Some years just seem to go by faster than others. However, despite its swiftness, last year was quite eventful. Here's my yearly update on the comings and goings of the North Carolina "Cookie folks". Travis and I continue to enjoy our "semi-retirement" by gardening. I buy the flowers and bulbs and Travis digs the holes. Travis tills the garden and I plant the vegetables. I comment "Wouldn't it look pretty to have a little fence around this flower bed?" Travis cuts down the cedar trees and makes me a fence. (See family photo). After 52 years of marriage...

Family Letter 2003

Family Letter 2003

Dear Friends, Well, the year 2001 will not easily be forgotten. For our country it was a year of tragic loss but also a year of a renewed patriotism. It was a year in which we realized the appreciation and honor that is due the millions of selfless individuals that serve our communities. For my family it was a year filled with valuable lessons. We were profoundly reminded how precious each day is and how important it is to let your loved ones know they are loved. I feel so blessed to be literally surrounded by my family. Travis and I live...
