Letters: Thanks for peach sale support

The Osage Lions would like to thank all the people in this great community for their support of our annual Peach Sale Project, proceeds of which go to people in need.

Unfortunately, this year, because there was frost on the trees when they were blooming, we received only half the amount of lugs that we normally do. Also, because we do not know the exact date that the peaches will arrive here, we cannot print an advance notice in the paper. We are sorry for the inconvenience to our loyal customers. We also thank them for calling their friends and neighbors to let them know that the "peaches are here." They normally arrive toward the end of August.

We would like to thank Park Ace Hardware and the Osage Community Center for the use of their parking lots for our sale. We would also like to especially thank J&B Foods for all their work, the use of their cooler and the use of their parking lot. Without them we would not be able to put on this great community project.
