Rotary Sells Peaches for Dictionaries
 
Fort Collins, Colorado.  July5, 2015 – The 2015 Annual Rotary Peach Sale is here! Every year for the past 12 years

quest to give a dictionary to every 3rd grader at both public, private, charter, and home schools in the Poudre 
School District.  In total they have distributed over 18,000 of these keepsake dictionaries thanks to this event.  
This year the 20 pound boxes of ‘Grade A’ Palisade, Colorado peaches are available for $39 per box. Every box 
sold buys one dictionary.  Excess funds will be used for literacy projects and other club projects.  If you don’t

donate your boxes of peaches to the Food Bank for Larimer County.
