Hilsman updates

The fundraiser has finally wrapped up. We will give final results after a few minor issues are tied up. We will turn in QSP orders next Monday and then it will take a few weeks to get the items delivered. We turned in the coffee orders today and expect to deliver those to the students on Monday or Tuesday next week.


We now have a convenient retail outlet for purchasing coffee and crediting the Hilsman PTO. The Village Herb Shop in the Food Lion shopping center at the corner of Gaines School and Cedar Shoals has the same coffee that we sold in the fundraiser. It is still $10/bag of which $3 goes to the school. Be sure to mention that you are buying for Hilsman PTO. Their hours: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday; 1-6 p.m. Sunday
