It’s that time of year again!
This year, Steve Grant as Captain Orange will run the annual Rotary Citrus Sale! Proceeds from these sales go to hundreds of local organizations and charities to help better the community. Some notable recipients are the YMCA, Airplane Park, Glik Park, the GlenEd Pantry, and so many more! Since 1989, over $1 million has been donated. Each cent was earned by hard working Rotarians selling cases of citrus to their friends, their families, and to you!
Prices this year are as follows:
1 case of oranges (40 pounds total) = $35.00
1 case of grapefruit (40 pounds total) = $33.00
1 case split (20 pounds of oranges AND 20 pounds of grapefruit = 40 pounds total) = $34.00

Welcome to Rotary
What Is Rotary?
Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. In more than 160 countries worldwide, approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 30,000 Rotary clubs.
Rotary club membership represents a cross-section of the community’s business and professional men and women. The world’s Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.
The main objective of Rotary is service – in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world. Rotarians develop community service projects that address many of today’s most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence. They also support programs for youth, educational opportunities and international exchanges for students, teachers, and other professionals, and vocational and career development. The Rotary motto is Service Above Self.
Rotary clubs provide:
- Friendships with other managerial and professional leaders in your community
- Prestige of membership in a worldwide organization
- Ongoing practical education
- A networking of people who can help you become more successful
- Promotion of higher ethical standards in your business or profession
- Projects to enhance your community
- Help for communities in countries around the world
