HAVE A GREAT HOLIDAY BREAK!

Fruit and cheesecake delivery

Thank you for your patience in dealing with the mix up in the delivery, especially the cheesecakes. Because the company shorted us a number of the cheesecakes, those who bought and didn't receive them will be getting a refund check from us, even if the purchase was made online. Checks will go home with students later this week to distribute to their customers.
