Fruit Crop Guesstimate rescheduled

The 57th Annual Fruit Crop Guesstimate, sponsored by the Michigan Frozen Food Packers Association (MFFPA), has been moved to 2:30 p.m. June 6 at the Amway Grand in Grand Rapids, Mich.

The guesstimate provides a forum for growers, processors, wholesalers and retailers to review expectations for the tart cherry, sweet cherry, apple, peach and blueberry crops in Michigan and across the nation.

A reception will follow the guesstimate. The registration fee is $75 per person and includes meeting materials and a reception.

For more information, write MFFPA at 4747 S. Elm Valley Rd., Suttons Bay, MI 49682; call 231-271-5752; fax 231-271-5753; email K. Terry Morrison.

MFFPA will present up to three scholarships during the guesstimate. Applications must be received no later than May 18, and each recipient must be able to attend the scholarship presentation on June 6.

While preference is given to students who have a relationship with an MFFPA member, priority will be given to those with Food Science majors who are in the upper half of their class and who reside in Michigan.

Anyone interested in applying for the scholarship should call Melanie LaPerriere at 269-434-6791.
