We have gotten our act together and have our first couple of fund raiser details put together. The first is our freshly home roasted coffee! We’ve developed a love/addiction for raw coffee beans roasted in our home into some of the best tasting, most delicious smelling liquid gold! This stuff is good! We have set up a ChipIn page and will be taking orders at firstname.lastname@example.org . Click on the 'Our Coffee Fundraiser' page to the left for some photos of the beans in process from green to golden (okay, they are dark brown but the taste is GOLDEN!) and more details. It will stay as a Page listed on the left side of the blog so as not to get lost in the shuffle of the other posts.
The second fund raiser in the works is more of an event. We will be having a Bringing Melissa Home Barbecue on August 13th from 5:00pm to 9:00pm. We will be selling some of Robert’s infamous pulled pork sandwiches, have farm fresh corn, barbecue sauce and rub made from scratch, as well as other delicious goodies to fill your bellies as you fill our hearts! There will be some drawings and we have some great prizes to win! There were also some requests for another bake sale so I will be making a few baked treats, but if anyone wants something particular, email me at email@example.com and I can have it for you at the bake sale. The address is 11836 S Hidden Valley Rd, Sandy, UT. *I tried to link the mapquest page, but it's not wanting to cooperate! Sorry!*
