Hello, Palermo Community!

This week’s news focuses on the upcoming Election Day and the annual citrus sale fundraiser by the Community Center and Food Pantry.

Voting hours and absentee ballots

As a reminder, Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 3. You may vote in person at the Town Office, 45 North Palermo Road, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Please note that the town office will closed for regular business on that day.

If you will be voting absentee either before or on Election Day, the Town of Palermo Announcements page provides detailed information about the absentee voting process (townofpalermo.org/news-and-announcements).

Sweet, sparkling citrus delivered to you

The Community Center and Food Pantry have announced their annual citrus sale fundraiser.

You can order oranges, grapefruit, mandarins and more, fresh from the tree and delivered to you — or anywhere in the continental USA — before Thanksgiving or Christmas. This annual fundraiser by the Living Communities Foundation will help support the Palermo Community Center and Food Pantry and is completely safe and contact-free. No matter what size box you order, shipping is only $6.95. You can ask your friends on social media to join in and their orders will send healthy treats while helping those in need.

The sale ends Nov. 11, so please go to floridaindianrivergroves.com/ecommerce/1018996, and you will see the beautiful fruit, all safely bundled in foam to protect against the cold and bumps. Just fill out the order form and enter either your credit card or e-check, and you can take care of your whole Christmas list!

You can also go to FruitSale.com and enter code 1018996. Press the "Order Now" button to see the wide variety of choices. If you are not online, just call 1-800-468-3168 and a real person will graciously help you with your order.

If you have any questions, please call Connie at 993-2294 or Melody at 701-1821.

The Community Center and Food Pantry thank you for your support and wish you a healthy, happy and safe holiday season!
