Family Letter 2000

Family Letter 2000

Dear Friends,    Yes, those are walking canes we are holding in our hands. In Septermber 1998, eleven members of our family and one friend, embarked on an adventure. Driving one large van, we visited Utah, Nevada and Arizona. The culmination of this trip was a hike in the Grand Canyon. Eight of us made this "trek". We walked from the North Rim to the South Rim. This is a distance of approximately 26 miles. At times the temperature exceeded 100 degrees. All of the above, (except Madison and Mocha the dog) made the hike. Not pictured, but also hiking, were...

Family Letter 1999

Dear Customer,    What a year! As you can see from our "dressed up" picture, we had a wedding in the family. Daughter Caroline, who works part time at the bakery, marrried her high school sweetheart in June. We decided that while we had on our Sunday clothes, we may as well get our family photo taken. Of course you will note we are missing our Head of Security, (Mocha, the Dog). Unfortunately, she was not invited to the wedding. She was very insulted.    It has been another blessed year. We welcomed another grandchild (and another assistant cookie taster). We hopped...

Family Letter 1998

Dear Customer,    Another year passes with record speed. It has been a year full of blessings, many joys and achievements. Travis and I are enjoying our "retirement", although my husband says he knows he will always be needed as long as there are light bulbs to change and plumbing to fix. I am enjoying working in my gardens. This is keeping me very busy. I ordered and planted over 1000 bulbs and then I started and transplanted around 800 plants out of my greenhouse. I have seriously requested that next year my daughter Mona is to hide any garden catalog before I...

Family Letter 1997

Dear Customer,    It seems the older I get, the faster time flies. I cannot believe another year has past. What a wonderful year it has been. We feel so blessed as a a family to be able to work together in such a pleasurable business. This past year our bakery was honored to have the Associated Press pick-up an article on our company. It appeared in newspapers all over the United States. We would like to thank all our many customers who sent us a copy. We were very pleased by that article but equally as gratifying were the nice...

Family Letter 1996

Dear Customer,    We have had another wonderful year at Mrs. Hanes' Moravian Cookies. Business has been steady and my family is happy and healthy. It is very rewarding to see the business I started over forty years ago now being nurtured by my children and grandchildren. We have a lot of fun working together. Recently, nine year old grandson, Jedidiah was promoted to the Sales Department. He enjoys waiting on customers and practicing his math skills. However, he says he is never giving up his "Chief Cookie Taster" title. Eventually, Jed wants to be President of the company. While proud of her...
