We are very excited for you to see what
we have been up to in Maryland and
Delaware since the Spring! We crowned
our new 2016 Watermelon Queen, Amy

Convention and she has been full of energy since day one! She is so ambitious and
eager to promote our product and we are
pleased to have her as our spokeswomen
this year for our
Queen Amy has been to training in Orlando, served thousands of cups of watermelon to runners in Charleston, South
Carolina, learned the germination and
planting process, rode on the watermelon planter, danced to the “Watermelon
Crawl,” spit seeds for hours, spoken on
live radio, diced up Watermelon Salsa,
worked in a grocery store selling watermelons, been on Pit Road at a Nascar
Race and served watermelon to drivers
and crew…SHEW!! What else is next
for her?! LOTS! And we will share it all
with you in the next edition of the Vineline!
Until next time, we hope everyone has a
wonderful watermelon season and we are
looking forward to promoting your product this summer!
