A Pair of Pairs for the Orchard! THANK YOU!

1/8 Sheet
Arches 140#CP

WE WON! WE WON!!!!

And as I sit here at 6:10 am in the morning, dawn not yet broken, and the announcement of the orchard winners ringing in my head (http://www.communitiestakeroot.com/Plant/Winner) - words fail me beyond -

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

I cannot express just how much we all appreciate your voting, your support, and your help! Thank you -- from the bottom of my heart - and the hearts and souls of those hungry individuals who will benefit from this grant.

Our tentative planting date is November 8 -- if you are anywhere near Smithfield North Carolina and could join us for this community-wide celebration and planting - please let me know -- and join us --

This event and orchard could not have been done without YOU!

BLESS YOU! AND THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!

The pears are lovely and such a nice tribute to the new orchard. A big congratulations as I know how hard you worked, encouraging people and posting the links for us. Sending out daily reminders, etc.

And I know how much your group does for the hungry in your area. You deserve it and I'm so happy for you all.
Hugs,
Lorraine
