Good bye Summer!

How quickly summer comes and goes! A recent visit to the supermarket shows that they are ready for Halloween!  Yes I am afraid to say Halloween is in the air while children at school are still writing papers on what they did this summer!

Imagine my surprise many years ago when out of the blue I get a call from Roche Brothers and Sudbury Farms saying they want to be involved with Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer!  I felt as if I had won the lottery!  All locations of both Sudbury Farms and Roche Brothers in Massachusetts would be involved and selling packages of their chocolate chip cookies with our logo on it!   I felt as if I had arrived!  What a major step for us!
I soon learned that the chocolate chip cookie that I had been feeding my daughter for so many years …
