Ordering deadline nears for Kiwanis citrus sale

Kiwanis members Emily Humiston and Jeff Turner, flanking Wilton Social Services Director Cathy Pierce, spread the word about the Kiwanis Club’s 20th annual Citrus Sale.

A large quantity of fresh fruit will be donated to the Wilton food pantry and other agencies as a result of this fund-raiser. Pre-orders for grapefruit, oranges and tangerines are being taken until Feb. 20, and will arrive direct from the Florida grove on Friday, March 1.

A limited number of additional cases will be available for walk-in customers at ECS Transportation, 290 Danbury Road, across from Wilton High School.

Fruit kept in a cold garage or refrigerator will remain fresh for many months. Order at wiltonkiwanis.org.
