  The Inez Wrenn School begins the 20112-13 citrus fruit program with fruit brought in from Florida and California, to help provide student scholarships starting in the month of November

For the past almost 20 plus years, the school has been bringing in freshly picked Navel oranges, Red grapefruit, Tangerines, Honey bell/ Tangelos , Spring  and Temple oranges. These fruits are full of Vitamin C, tree ripened, hand picked, no color added and 100% fresh

Scores of Crossvillites have been supporting the Inez Wrenn school scholarships for almost 20 years through their use of the citrus fruit.  Those eating the fruit have made the statement many times that “ this is the best fresh  fruit brought into Crossville.” The fruit is picked from the trees, sorted, packed, and shipped, all within a few days, so that when the fruit arrives in Crossville, it is as fresh and sweet as possible, because it has not been stored in a warehouse or distribution center for a week or more, before arriving at a market.

Citrus fruits arriving in November are Florida Navel oranges, Tangerines, Red grapefruit and the Variety Pack-a mixture of Navel oranges, Tangerines and Red grapefruit from Nov-Jan.. In January only, the Honev bell/ Tangelos will be added. Temple Oranges in February and a  Florida Spring Orange in March only. California Mandarins and Navels will be available during February & March. All orders should be called in to the telephone numbers: Joy at 931-456-1935,  Millie at 931-456-1580. Lee at 931-484-8624 , or Penny/Kelly at 931-456-9905.

The schedule deadline for ordering the first citrus fruit of this new season is Nov. 1 and arrival of the fruit for distribution is between Nov. 13-16. Contact will be made by the school volunteers with those who have ordered the fruit, informing them of the actual arrival day and time for pickup of the fruit at the Inez Wrenn School at 2337 West Ave., (N-70) across from Obed Park.

A schedule of order and arrival dates will be given to those who pickup their first fruit in November, and will be also published in this newspaper, each month.  All questions, prior to orders, should be addressed to Forest Draper, Program Coordinator at 931-788-1375.
