Now that we’re near the end of marching season, it’s time to start Fruit & Poinsettia Sales!
The CCHS Marching Terriers have held this fundraiser for years! Our customers look forward to this opportunity to support the band, and it offers students a great way to increase their individual band accounts. The accounts help pay for band camp, uniforms, and trip expenses. Approximately half of the profit from fruit sales, plus $4 per poinsettia, will be deposited into students’ band accounts. The remainder is deposited into the Band Booster account, which is used throughout the year for food during marching season, equipment expenses, and more.
Our citrus fruit comes fresh from Florida Indian River Groves. Their product is of consistently high quality and we will again offer navel oranges and red grapefruit in both 20- and 40-pound boxes, as well as 20- and 40-pound mixed boxes of oranges and grapefruit. Customers will again have the option of placing their orders on-line using a credit card.
Our poinsettias come from Mioux Greenhouse, located in Carlyle, IL. We will have plants available in red, white, and pink (“ice-punch” is not available this year). The poinsettias come in 6 ½” pots with foil wrap and a plastic sleeve – gift-ready!
Please familiarize yourself with this sale. Know your products, prices, and ordering options before selling.
