From the desk of: Bobi E. Manuel - Happy New Year

With the month of January already behind us it still seems hard to believe we have entered into a new year so soon.  We have been busy across the board making up for lost time due to last month's holidays and the weather conditions that tightened the belt on our production.  We would like to thank you for all the hard work you do to not only keep us going but to also catch us up to speed with our internal and external goals.  Last November YFP had a great month in both production and sales and we were privileged enough to be able to provide a catered lunch from Famous Dave's for all employees this past December.  We kick start this year with running one shift at the Hew Saw which started back up in the middle of January leaving one crew at the Large Saw Mill.  Our inventory of logs has held strong and with the market doing well and the strong crews we have been maintaining and adding to we are looking forward to a promising new year.
