4-H Apple-Pecan Sale!

Now is the time to order your juicy, crisp, fresh apples and crunchy pecans. The annual Apple-Pecan Sale is one of the major fundraisers which the Pinellas County 4-H Foundation sponsors each year. The sale runs from September 1, 2009 through October 1, 2009. All orders should be in by October 1. The apples will arrive the last week of October.
Apples may be ordered through your local 4-H club or individuals may order on their own.
If you are new to this fundraiser, you should know that the apples are picked and delivered to us within days. They are much fresher than the apples you buy in the stores. The pecans are this year's crop and come in several different varieties. The plain halves and pieces are in one pound bags. The chocolate covered and glazed varieties come in decorative 12 ounce bags. These bags make great gifts for all the upcoming holidays.

The Pinellas County 4-H Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization serving Pinellas County 4-H Youth Development Program by receiving, managing and administering private funds. It was incorporated in 1972 and is chartered by the State of Florida. The Foundation is governed by an all volunteer board of directors composed of 4-H friends, 4-H alumni, donors and individuals. Membership to the Foundation is open to anyone in the community interested in working for the benefit of youth.
Each year the 4-H Foundation provides $6,000 in scholarships so that 4-H youth and volunteers can attend state, regional, and national events. These events include trainings, 4-H competitions, and 4-H camps.
What better way to support Pinellas County youth than through the 4-H Foundation fundraiser?
Enjoy your apples and pecans!
