HARVARD — This Saturday, April 3, will be the last chance to purchase delicious Florida grapefruit and oranges from your Harvard Lions Club. Treat your family while at the same time benefiting Lions charities and local community programs:
Royal Ruby Red grapefruit — naturally sweet and seedless. The flavor is reminiscent of refreshing red grapes and sweet nectarines.
Valencia oranges — delicate texture with sweet juice that quenches your thirst. Perfect for delicious vitamin C juice or sliced healthy snacks.
Both are available in 20-pound and 40-pound boxes, for $24 and $36 respectively. You can also purchase a mixed 20-pound box for $26. The fruit is sold on a “cash and carry” basis.
Fruit sale stations will be set up at the Harvard transfer station from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the Harvard Town Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The fruit has been safely stored and refrigerated at Carlson’s Orchards to maintain its freshness.
For those who won’t be in town on Saturday, you can order by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or call 978-456-8795.
The annual fruit sale is the Harvard Lions second-largest fundraising event each year. Proceeds are used to support a wide range of charities and community programs including, eye and diabetes research; sponsoring diabetic boys and girls to attend the Clara Barton summer camps; providing assistance dogs for injured veterans and disabled children; purchase of sight screening equipment for Harvard schools and providing sight screenings using the Lions Sightmobile; supporting Bromfield student projects; donations to Loaves & Fishes, plus support for many other charities and programs.
