Family Letter 2005

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

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...

Family Letter 2002

Dear Friends, I am amazed at how fast the year has passed. It's been a wonderful year. In July, we were blessed with national coverage on the Food Network. A show called Food Finds (based on a book by Allison and Margaret Engel) featured our company. Being rather unsophisticated about the power of TV, we had no idea how fortunate we were to be chosen for the premier show. The first show aired at 10:30 pm on July 17th, 2000. To be honest, we thought "who watches TV that late at night?" Well apparently, most of America. The phone lit up like...

Family Letter 2001

Family Letter 2001

Dear Friends, And so, another year passes with phenomenal swiftness. It seems like yesterday that Grandson Jedidiah was in kindergarten. Now he towers over his mother in height. Granddaughter Madison is 10 years old and twice as "dramatic" as her mother. (Something I never thought was humanly possible.) The good news is both of our "cookie tasters" are wonderful grandchildren. Even at age 15, Jed continually hugs his mother and grandparents (if only to let us know, we are shorter than he is). And Ramona (our daughter) has kept her vow never to say to her daughter, (as I used to say...
