Email sent on May 29 to ONLY those that ordered nucs
“The latest update regarding NUC pick up:
If you have a schedule conflict with the 6th and 7th or are willing to wait until the 13th , Tom thinks he will be able to load and deliver nucs at the original site (Edgecliff Village) on June 13th from 2pm—4 pm. If you would like your NUCS before the 13th and are willing/able to drive to Terrell (or have someone picking up for you), please continue as planned.”

If you did not receive either of the two the emails sent to those that ordered,  please contact Christina Simmons for details ASAP.
