Easter candy for sale!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted on Thursday, February 18th, 2016

Easter is right around the corner and we are selling Log Cabins Candy
again this year!!!!  When I place our orders the candy is made fresh
and is never just sitting around as stock.  Thats why we always
need to get our orders in at least 3-4 weeks before Easter so
the candy shop has time to make our candy.

We will run this fund raiser from Feb. 8, 2015 to Feb. 26, 2015.
Please have all your orders to me no later than that date with the money.
It usually only takes about 1 week to get the candy so we will have
your candy for pickup either at Chadwell Animal Hospital, my house
in Elkton.  I will send out an email as soon as we
pick up the candy so we can make arrangements with you to get your
candy.  Everything we sell makes the rescue 40%!

So everyone get selling!!!  Ask your neighbors, friends, family,
co-workers and anyone else you can think of.  Everyone loves
Easter candy and especially fresh home made candy!

I have brochures here and can mail you one and Claudia has
brochures at Chadwell.  So please help us help the ferrets.
Lets get selling this delicious Easter candy from our local
candy store Log Cabin!!!

Easter Candy Fundraiser

Posted on Saturday, January 24th, 2015

 We are selling homemade Easter candy again this year.  The
candy is made to order from Log Cabin Candies in Fallston Md.
 They are a long time family owned business.  All their candy is
delicious and who knows it may even be good for you
(I know I always feel better after Ieat chocolate)!!!!
They have a website but there isnt any candy
on their site so if you would like to order and sell Easter candy
to help all the ferrets at Oxford Ferret Rescue just let Claudia  know
and we will get a brochure in the mail to you.
We will run this fund raiser from:
now thru March 17th
Please have your order emailed to Claudia by Friday March 13th
and the money mailed to Claudia.  The order will be placed
on Tuesday, March 17th.  This will give us enough time to get
the candy to everyone in plenty of time for Easter.
So get your brochure and ask all your family, friends, neighbors
and co-workers to purchase their Easter candy from us so that
we can help make Claudia’s life just alittle bit easier by helping
lower her massive vet bill!!!  As you all know no ferret is ever
turned away from Claudia just because it may need serious vet
care.  In fact she will always take those poor ferrets in dire
need when nobody else will.  So lets sell as much as we can
so we can help Claudia help all the ferrets at
Oxford Ferret Rescue!
