Collegiate FFA Holding Annual Flower & Fruit Sale

November 9, 2010 under CANR News, Events

As part of the holiday season the Collegiate FFA will be taking orders for the annual poinsettias and citrus fruit sale from November 4th-22nd.

The fruit last year was excellent and the varieties available have been tremendous-ranging from the traditional full and one-half cases of naval, pink (red) grapefruit, and tangelos to variety packs of mixed fruit including apples, pears, tangerines, navels, grapefruits, etc. all conveniently and attractively packaged.

Citrus sales benefit the training, special activities, and community service efforts of the Collegiate FFA. Delivery is tentatively planned for the week of the December 6th.

The traditional poinsettia sale, with proceeds going into the Collegiate FFA Scholarship Fund, will feature red or white poinsettias in 7 1/2” pots with 8-12 blooms and 8 1/2” pots with 12-15 blooms. Collegiate FFA was able to give two scholarships last year through CANR’s support. Delivery is also tentatively planned the week of December 6th, but not the same day as fruit.

A Collegiate FFA member will be stopping by your department beginning this week. If you are not in, they will leave a door hanger and make a return visit. Should you be missed feel free to contact Dr. Arba Henry (Rm 228, X1320) or Dr. Pat Barber (Rm 110, X 4232). Payment is requested at the time of ordering, or email Collegiate FFA President, Ashely Kinsley at
