Long-term MRFC member Wayne Clifton passed away on June 19 after a long illness. Honoring his family’s request, the MRFC has sent a donation to the Tidewell Hospice branch in Ellenton in lieu of
flowers. In next month’s newsletter we plan to feature remembrances of Wayne and his many contributions to the MRFC and to fruit tree horticulture in our region. We ask those who wish
to contribute to send your written appreciation of Wayne to either Pete Robertson  or Darryl McCullough .
