Rotary Club of Springfield's John Montgomery Memorial Citrus Sale
This year's annual Citrus Sale is again dedicated to the memory of John Montgomery who passed away in 2099 and was a member of our club for over 53 years.
Since 1975, when we began selling citrus, nearly $1.4 million in grants have been provided to local charities through proceeds from this annual event!
We obtain fresh-picked Seedless Navel Oranges and Ruby Red Grapefruit from the Indian River Groves in central Florida and bring them to you for the Holiday Season. These Grade A Oranges and Grapefruit are a favorite for gifts to friends, employees, and business associates. Donors may also designate a gift of oranges to the Central Illinois Foodbank through this program.
Fruit can be ordered through a member of the Rotary Club of Springfield, by phone or internet.
Phone Orders: 217-566-4326
Internet Orders:
Ordering Deadline is November 13.
Citrus Pickup/Delivery Dates: December 8-9 at the Underfanger Mayfair Moving and Storage Warehouse
40 Lb. cases of Oranges, Grapefruits, or mixed fruit are $50 per case. 20 Lb. cases are $30 per case. Gifts of oranges to the Central Illinois Foodbank or Food Pantries may be for either size.
Please order your citrus now! Enjoy or gift great, nutritious citrus, and help support local charities!
