Auntie Anne’s announced a voluntary recall of their pretzel dogs. This included the Auntie Anne’s Fundraising Pretzel Dogs (6 per box) package with UPC code of 00895072000092. The pretzel dogs were produced on various dates from February 14, 2014 to November 14, 2014. The Club’s Choice Fundraising code for this product in our sales brochure is item #800 Auntie Anne’s Pretzel Dog. We also had a two for one item substitution for Club’s Choice Item #806 Auntie Anne’s Pretzel Dough. Some of the #806 substitutions contained item #800 Auntie Anne’s Pretzel Dog as one of the two replacement items. The reason for the recall is due to a mislabeling and omission of Soy Lecithin (a known allergen) on the Auntie Anne’s Pretzel Dogs label. According to Auntie Anne’s, there is no health risk associated with this product for individuals without an allergy to soy. Some of your families who participated in your fundraising event received this product. We have included the Auntie Anne’s recall announcement along with the sellers who sold this product. We here at Club’s Choice Fundraising are taking the proper steps to ensure that the health and safety of our customers is top priority. Below is the statement from City Line Foods Manufacturing Company. From Auntie Anne’s: The health and safety of consumers who enjoy our products is our number one priority. We are therefore working closely with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). We are immediately issuing a voluntary recall for certain frozen pretzel hot dog products manufactured by City Line Foods Manufacturing Co. and directing consumers with a soy allergy to contact City Line Foods Manufacturing Co. (customercare@citylinefoodsmfg.com or 1-877-778-9588) to return the product and request a full refund. It is important to note that this recall does not affect Auntie Anne’s pretzel stores found in malls, airports, and other venues. There is no health risk associated with these products for individuals without an allergy to soy. In addition, there is a full press release on the Auntie Anne’s web site. You can find that press release here:http://www.auntieannes.com/our-story/newsroom/media-releases/selectproducts- sold-by-fundraising-and-retail-affected-by-voluntary-recall Thank You Club’s Choice Fundraising Wednesday,  Nov  26,  2014       Time   Event   Details   Comments   3:15pm-­‐  4:30pm   Theater  -­‐  One  Act  Play  -­‐   Practice       Room  144       3:30pm   Basketball:Girls  Varsity   Scrimmage     Lester  Prairie/Holy   Trinity  vs.  Mayer   Lutheran  @  Mayer   Lutheran  H.S.   Bus:  3:10  LP  only   3:30pm-­‐  6:00pm   Basketball  -­‐  Practice  9-­‐12   Girls        Holy  Trinity  Gym       C  &  JV               3:30pm-­‐  5:30pm   Basketball  -­‐  Practice  Boys   JV/Varsity        Lester  Prairie  Gym       5:30pm-­‐  8:30pm   CE  -­‐  Basketball  Practice       Lester  Prairie  Gym   5:30-­‐7:00   4th/5th/6th  grade   girls  7:00-­‐8:30   4th/5th  grade   boys           Thursday,  Nov  27,  2014       Happy  Thanksgiving               Friday,  Nov  28,  2014       Time   Event   Details   Comments   8:30am-­‐  10:30am   Basketball  -­‐  Practice  Boys   JV/Varsity        Lester  Prairie  Gym       10:30am-­‐   11:30am   Basketball  -­‐  Practice  Boys   JV/Varsity        Lester  Prairie  Gym   9th  Grade  Boys   3:00pm-­‐  10:00pm   Basketball  -­‐  Bulldog   Shoot-­‐a-­‐Thon        Lester  Prairie  Gym               Saturday,  Nov  29,  2014               Sunday,  Nov  30,  2014       Time   Event   Details   Comments   12:30pm-­‐  2:00pm   CE  -­‐  Open  Gym       Lester  Prairie  Gym       3:30pm-­‐  8:00pm   CE  -­‐  Basketball  Practice       Lester  Prairie  Gym   3:30-­‐5:00  4th/5th   grade  boys  5:00-­‐ 6:30  6th  grade   boys  6:30-­‐8:00   4th/5th/6th  grade   girls           Practice  Shuttle  Times       3:08  -­‐  Pick  up  at  Lester  Prairie       3:20  -­‐  Drop  off  /  Pick  up  at  Holy  Trinity       3:35  -­‐  Drop  off  at  Lester  Prairie       4:45  -­‐  Pick  up  at  Lester  Prairie       5:00  -­‐  Drop  off  /  Pick  up  at  Holy  Trinity       5:15  -­‐  Drop  off  at  Lester  Prairie       No School on Thursday, Nov. 27 and Friday, Nov. 28.

Gentlemen, has you may know it is the month of November. You may have heard that it is also know as No

support of cancer in men. Some cancer patients lose their hair so we can show support by letting ours grow wild
and free. Growing your facial hair raises awareness for cancer so it is a good cause. So men of Lester Prairie

grow their facial hair will get together at the end of the month and take a marvelous picture and your name will
be entered into a prize drawing!

lay-ups, 15 left-handed lay-up, 50 free throws, and 20 three point shots).

Toys for Mary’s Place
Help the National Honor Society this holiday season by donating toys
to Mary’s Place. By donating toys you have the opportunity to bring
joy and happiness to children whose families can’t afford gifts this Christmas.
If we reach our goal of 250 toys we will be rewarded with a movie day.
The class that brings in the most toys will win free ice cream that will be
provided on movie day!
