For close to 40 years our Rotary Club has been offering fresh Florida Fruit from November to March. Unfortunately, the remainder of this year’s Fruit Sale, both the February and March sales are canceled, as the supplier could NOT get us enough fresh, properly ripened fruit. We apologize for any inconvenience.
We hope to see you in the Fall 2016 for our next sale.
Claudia Campbell, a Rotary member and Flourtown resident and local business owner, is the author of a recently published children’s book. On a bright, early spring day, Claudia Campbell read her new book, Whoever Heard of Such a Thing at the Chestnut Hill Library. Claudia’s book is a whimsical romp through the world of the imagination. The book stands in contrast to Claudia’s business – Tabitha Harrier Concierge, which is focused on efficiency and results and far from whimsical. The writing and publishing of the book is a story in itself. More than twenty years ago, Claudia and her sister whiled away school vacation hours writing and illustrating a gentle tale of imagination. The book, crayon drawings and paste‑on letters in its original form, languished in a box in an attic for some twenty years. Three years ago, Claudia shared the story of the book’s creation with a computer‑savvy friend who scanned the original text and drawings to a computer file. Another of Claudia’s friends, a graphic artist, readied the book for publication in both electronic and hard copy form. Claudia’s book is a delightful look at imaginings that invite discussion between parent or grandparent and young children. The book is especially fun as a read‑aloud book for young children. Claudia’s book and her interest in encouraging children’s literacy is consistent with her membership in Springfield Township Rotary Club. Rotary’s goals include special focus on promoting children’s literacy both in the United States and internationally. Whoever Heard of Such a Thing is available from Kindle.com, Amazon.com and Blurb.com in a variety of formats.

In November and December we sell Navel Oranges and Ruby Red Grapefruit. In January, Heavenly Honey Bells and Ruby Red Grapefruit are sold, and in February and March Temple Oranges and Ruby Red Grapefruits are sold.
Navel Oranges: big beautiful navels kick off the orange season with an explosion of sweet juicy flavor.
Ruby Red Grapefruit: the refreshing sweet taste of this all-season citrus is matched only by the vitamins tucked away under its rosy skin.
Temple Oranges: rich deep color and a taste to match, the easy to peel Temples are a favorite with citrus connoisseurs.
Heavenly Honeybells: get ready for a treat! Exceptionally sweet, unbelievably juicy! They are available only in January – but worth the wait! Order now for our highly anticipated Honeybell Oranges. These exceptionally juicy, mouth-watering fruit are a really special treat. The flavor is sweet and really unique.
Honeybells are large bell shaped hybrids that are a cross between the super sweet Duncan Grapefruit and the delicately flavored Dancy Tangerine. They’re called “honeybells” because of their honey-sweet flavor and unique bell shape. They’re easy to peel, or can be sliced, and are usually seedless.
This citrus delicacy is a rare pleasure – they are the most difficult variety of orange to grow and harvest and are in short supply. They are available ONLY in January, so order now for both you and for friends.
