Orders for the annual Windsor High School After Prom fruit sale, including Palisade Peaches, are being taken until Monday. The fruit can be picked up from 8 a.m.-noon Saturday and Aug. 25 at the Windsor-Severance Re-4 School District administration building parking lot, 1020 Main St. in Windsor.

The Windsor High School After Prom committee is holding its biggest fundraiser of the year with the annual fruit sale, and the deadline to order is Monday.

"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 for its annual fundraiser. Tomberlin said profits from the sales of these fresh peaches, apples and pears go to fund the 2014 WHS After Prom party.

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

Fruits available are:

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