Thank YOU for supporting our December 2014 Fruit Sale!!!

Posted on January 2, 2015

SOLD OUT!!!!citrus

Our December fruit sale was a big successs – we sold all the fresh grapefruit and oranges by noon Saturday, Dec 20.  We also sold all (but one) Vermont maple syrup, and most of the Virginia peanuts.

As you may know, our 3 annual fruit sales are our primary fund raising activities.  They enable the Fairfax Lions to conduct our many charity and service programs helping those in need in our local area.  (For information on those programs, please see that portion of this web site.)

So, a BIG thank you to all our friends and neighbors in Virginia, Maryland, and DC who were customers at the December fruit sale.

Also, thank you for bringing us your old eyeglasses.  We take used eyeglasses to the Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center of Northern Virginia http://www.valions.org/EGRC/ where they are cleaned, inspected and sorted by prescription.  The majority of the glasses are then sent overseas with eye care professionals and fit to individuals in need of eye glasses.  Some glasses go to depressed areas of the US where, with the assistance of trained medical personnel, they are distributed to needy citizens.

Our next fruit sale will be on March 12-14, 2015, same location (parking lot by Home Depot just south of Fairfax Circle on Old Lee Highway).  We look forward to fresh Valencia oranges along with great grapefuit fresh from Florida!
