As most everyone is aware, the Church has suspended the canning of all meat products. We will be conducting a test run on October 10th, with a new set of procedures that must be followed. It is critical that anyone wishing to participate in the canning of meat products review thoroughly the attached documents. (Documents available from R.S. Presidency Sunday.) A signed copy of the “Note of Ownership (Bill of Sale)” must be received by October 3, 2008, in order to participate in this canning session. (This can either be a faxed copy of the document [Fax: 529-9956], or a signed original document.) Any questions can be directed to the cannery. Calling in to sign up will not be complete nor secure you a place in this family canning activity until we have the signed “Note of Ownership (Bill of Sale)” in our possession. If someone fails to show up on the canning date, the product cannot be sold to anyone else, nor given away. The only alternative the cannery will have will be to throw the product away.

This test run will assist the Church in evaluating the feasibility of offering meat products for family canning in the future. Your cooperation, patience and understanding is appreciated.

Due to a remodeling of the electrical wiring in the cannery during November and December, this family canning will be the last we will do this year. The next opportunity will be during the March time frame of 2009. Also depending upon the challenges we experience with the meat product will determine if it will be offered in the future.

Domestic Kitchen Group

The Domestic Kitchen group will meet this Thursday, September 4, at 1:00 p.m. at Nikkie Stevens' home. We will have a jam making demonstration and a planning meeting for the rest of the year's activities. Contact Nikkie if you have any questions or need directions to her house - 787-9292.
