Comment For The Day
I sold Chardon Kiwanis maple cotton candy to customers in the Log Cabin who informed me that it would be shipped to Brazil, Florida and Boise, Idaho. I was also told 100 percent Geauga Maple syrup was being mailed to a friend’s relatives in Clive, Iowa, and Morganton, N.C.
I enjoyed being in the parade on Saturday and I loved selling products for Kiwanis.
The Friends’ of the Library were also busy meeting old acquaintances, friends and newcomers at the annual library book sale. The library was packed with both books and customers.
In addition, the pancakes were delicious all around town.
