Deadline extended until Tuesday to order peaches, apples and pears for WHS After Prom fundraiser

Orders for the annual Windsor High School After Prom fruit sale, including Palisade Peaches, are being taken until Tuesday. The fruit can be picked up from 8 a.m.-noon Saturday and Aug. 25 at the Windsor-Severance Re-4 School District administration parking lot in Windsor.

The deadline to order fresh fruit for the Windsor High School annual After Prom fundraiser has been extended.

“Our orchard has extended our deadline until Tuesday. We need to raise lots of money from this fundraiser for After Prom,” said Linda Tomberlin of the After Prom committee.

The After Prom committee is taking orders for fresh, hand-picked Colorado fruit. Tomberlin said profits from the sales of the fresh peaches, apples and pears go to fund the 2014 WHS After Prom party. The original deadline to order was Aug. 12.

“This is a fun, alcohol-free alternative party for Windsor High School junior and senior students,” Tomberlin said.

Fruits available:

— Palisade Peaches are $35 for 25-pound box ($1.40 pound); $18 for 1/2 box peaches ($1.45 pound)

— Ginger Gold Apples are $25 for 22-pound box ($1.14 pound); $13 for 1/2 box ($1.18 per pound)

— Bartlett Pears are $25 for 28-pound box (89 cents pound); $13 for 1/2 box (93 cents per pound)

“All fruit is hand-picked, tree-ripened, quality fruit from Fritchman Orchards, located on the Western Slope of Colorado,” Tomberlin said.

Tomberlin said after placing an order, customers will be contacted prior to delivery. Payment is due at the time of pickup — cash and checks only.

Fruit orders were picked up from 8 a.m.-noon Saturday and will be picked up at the same time Aug. 25 at the Windsor-Severance Re-4 School District administration parking lot, 1020 Main St. in Windsor.
