Recently growers received a mailing from the Washington Apple Commission outlining the need to have accurate and up-to-date addresses and acreages. We have had overwhelming response to this mailing and I want to thank all growers for their kind attention to this very important issue. Accurate grower information is critical, not only to your Washington Apple Commission, but to other industry groups that rely upon the WAC to maintain and update the grower listing.

This month those of you in District #2 (I-90 south to Yakima) will receive a ballot for the WAC District #2 position #5 election. Two very capable industry leaders will be running for a three-year Commission appointment to the WAC. Grower assistance in updating our records provides opportunity to voice opinions to important issues that could affect the long-term success of our membership.

Thank you!
