NOTES

Well Saturday we were out at the shack, lots of visitors throughout the day. The hydro makes life so much simpler out there. The guys did some work on the kitchen, then a group of us walked the pipeline and put some more saddles on. Have to order more of those to finish up where we added the 50 extra taps this year.
Adding the debit machine has certainly made it easier for everyone in the store, will be great at the cash booth as well for Maple in the County.
Hoping everyone remembers that uniformed servicemen and women receive a discount in our store. Please let us know prior to checking out. We still have some syrup in the store. There is some butter available as well as some candy.
