The Literacy Committee was looking to promote literacy as well as incorporate a fund raising opportunity what they came up with was "Nuts for Literacy".  The committee thought the slogan was a perfect fit for the glazed nuts that we were going to sell at the 2010 Apple Fest (but was the entire event was cancelled due to high water). The glazed nuts were prepared & packaged by Kiki leech and Michael Swaidner's design team came up with the logo and labels for our packaging. The committee made $280 at the Colchester Winter Fest and we will continue to sell the nuts which should generate a $500 profit when all are sold.
