Roxanne’s Sales Talk


We have extra recipe books made up at the Co-op for anyone who wants one. Stop in.

The Mug Photo contest was a tie between Linda/Bruce Lee for the “pretty sky picture” and Ann/Robin Shears for the “picture of the Bigfork River.” We decided to use both pictures, so they will each receive a $25 credit on their electric bill. Thank you for participating! The mug looks great and everyone loved it.

There were NO letters to Santa this year so that must mean that every child thinks they are getting what they want, right?

We also had a hat and mitten tree again this year and it was so nice to see the tree was completely full of hats, mittens and scarves, some of which were even homemade! I want to say thanks to the community, board members and all the employees who donated. It was great watching the kids pick out what they wanted off the tree, they were so excited.

Duane Barrow and crew brought his team up again this year and gave wagon rides! I think this was one of the best years we have had in a long time. It was a very nice evening, none of that -20 degrees like we have had in the past. I had the opportunity to go on the first ride and was lucky enough to have a bunch of kids who liked to sing Christmas carols. It was a great ride, lots of fun...once again they did a great job.

I think the Open House went very well. Everyone seemed to have a good time and enjoyed the doughnuts, cookies, coffee and cider. There were lots of compliments on the mugs and of course everyone was happy to be getting their Capital Credit check. After all, who can’t use a little extra money during the holidays?

Friday night Santa made his appearance, and all the kids were so excited to tell him what they wanted for Christmas. Santa gave them each a candy cane full of chocolate kisses and then took their requests back to the Pole to get started on all the orders. Before he left, he drew names out of the box for kids to receive a gift, and for anyone that was there who wasn’t lucky enough to get picked for a gift from Santa, one of his helpers was passing out Frisbees so everyone got something. The perfect end to a great evening.

Thanks for coming and I wish you all a happy and safe New Year!
