Florida Citrus Sale – ALL PROCEEDS TO CHARITY

Posted on November 9, 2021Comments are off

Fairfax Lions Citrus Sale begins Thursday, Nov 18th (9am-4pm) and runs until Sunday, Nov 21 (or when sold out). Sales Trailer: 3251 Old Lee Highway, Fairfax, VA 22030

Preorder athttps://fairfaxlions.square.site/s/order

Orders are VERY brisk; to ensure we have fruit for you – preorder your purchase and schedule a pickup time!

We operate a socially distanced and contact free sale. Customers will not need to exit their vehicles. Orders will be taken and paid-for as you enter the sale lines; Lion volunteers will load your vehicle as you drive forward (much like a fast-food take-out line). Credit Cards, mobile payments, checks accepted. Credit cards preferred. If you must pay by cash please have exact change for your purchases.

See prices below. We sell full & half boxes ONLY of fruit direct from FL groves; we do not offer smaller quantities to avoid direct handling of fruit.

The preorder system allows us to spread pick-ups across Thursday, Friday, and Saturday – at a time you select – to avoid long lines. To ensure we have the fruit you want, pre-order NOW and schedule your pickup at https://fairfaxlions.square.site/s/order

Pre-order prices include full-box discount. You may sign up for personal notification of all fruit sales, at: https://www.fairfaxlions.org/wp-admin/post.php?post=46&action=edit

Ms Margaret Anthony, of the Annandale Toastmasters Club, spoke at the August 17th meeting of Fairfax Lions Club. Toastmasters International teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of clubs like Annandale Toastmasters Club.

Lions Club President Mike Thanks Toastmaster Margaret for Speaking

Margaret challenged Lions to give a 1-2 minute impromptu talk on their favorite movie, vacation, TV show, country, or public figure. It was fun, and illustrated the importance of learning and practicing public speaking.
