Over the last weekend, Terry, Mary Ellen and I finished our final show for 2015, at Jaimie Myer’s three day Winter Solstice event. With our activities complete for the year, this gives us an opportunity to reflect on 2015, and look with anticipation to 2016. While we have had a few disappointments this year, and have dealt with a number of health related issues, the positives far outweighed the negative. We have added a few new retail partners, showed up on the radar of a sustainable food association, and caught the eye of our neighborhood business association, who has declared our company, “the best kept secret in the Twin Cities.” We’ve also learned how much you folks out there love our company through your votes and well wishes during the Mission Main Street Grants competition. In addition, we were able to raise a goodly amount of money through the generosity of our local Peeps for our local food shelf Second Harvest Heartland, and feed thousands of people in the Twin Cities.
Looking forward, in 2016 Winter Goddess Foods will be working closely with the Neighborhood Development Center to identify and implement strategies to make our business better than ever. We are considering the development of a few new products to add to our growing catalogue, and we are also looking to add more retail partners to our Winter Goddess family. 2015 was a great year for us, and we expect that 2016 will be even better!
Terry and I would like to thank you for your continued support of Winter Goddess Foods. We ask that not only during this season but throughout this year and into next, that you consider doing something good for those who are less fortunate. Everyone needs to be shown that they matter, and by doing good for others, you shine as a light of hope for humanity, and as a positive example of how we should be with each other. Here’s wishing all goodness, blessings and prosperity to you and yours, our dear Peeps, from the bottom of our hearts.
Nehemiah and Terry
