Fairfax Lions Club completed its major charity fund raiser, our citrus fruit sale over November 16-18. We encouraged folks to order/pre-pay on-line, and the processes worked great! We still had some mandarins, naval oranges and grapefruit – along with VA peanuts and Vermont maple syrup – for sale at the sales site. At closing, 6-cases of un-sold oranges were donated to Food For Others. We thank our great customers for supporting the Lions Club! Be sure to order now for the December sale! ORDER
