Citrus Fruit: It is once again time to think citrus. Our biggest school fundraiser is our citrus fruit fundraiser from November through March. Our first sale is Sunday, November 13, from 10-3. Orders should be placed by Sunday, October 30th. Since the Florida groves are having issues with their fruit, we are getting the navels and ruby red grapefruit from Texas for the first two months. To place an order, go online to our website at go2rks.com and choose the citrus sales link, or you can call the fruit line at 304-264-5975 or email Kim at email@example.com.
