For the 24th year, the Kiwanis Club of Wilton has kicked off its annual Citrus Sale, an event eagerly anticipated by customers who have purchased the fruit from club members in past years. Last year the club sold nearly 2,000 cases with the help of partners such as the Grace Community Church of New Canaan, the Wilton High School Wrestling team, and the Knights of Columbus of St. Matthew in Norwalk. The partners fund their own
charities while Kiwanis sales have supported various local organizations in past years, including Visiting Nurse and Hospice, Wilton Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Mid-Fairfield Child Guidance Center, Wilton Youth Council, Norwalk Emergency Shelter, Trackside Teen Center, Wilton Social Services, the Bridgeport Rescue Mission and many more.
Kiwanis is the oldest service club in Wilton, and the Citrus Sale involves all the members of the club selling, distributing the fruit and helping in many ways during the month of February. Citrus orders can be placed online or with any Kiwanis Club member.
Orders will be available for pickup Friday-Sunday, March 3-5 at ECS Transportation, 390 Danbury Rd.. Eugene Horne, president of ECS, has donated the use of his facility for this purpose for the last four years.
