Thanks to everyone who purchased Palisade peaches from Arvada Rotary…we had a great sale!  Profits from that sale benefit youth in Arvada and around the world. For those that contributed to our Polio Fund when you purchased your peaches, another big thank you.  Rotary International has made great strides in eradicating polio around the world.  Your donation allows us to continue this battle.
 
If you want to be notified of next year’s Peach Sale, please send your name, email address and phone number to Arvada.Rotary@Outlook.com.  Your information will never be used for any other purpose.
