Lions clubs taking Vidalia onion orders

April 13th, 2012 by Staff Report in Life Entertainment

Boynton and Ringgold, Ga., Lions clubs are taking orders for Vidalia onions, which will be ready for pickup at the end of April.

Fundraising chairmen Richmond Blackwell and Jim Cosper said onions are sold in 5-pound bags ($5), 10-pound bags ($10) or 25-pound bags ($20).

Orders are being taken in advance with pickup at Boynton United Methodist Church.

To order, send a 50-percent deposit with your name, phone number and/or email to Boynton Lions Club, 3179 Pine Grove Road, Ringgold, GA 30736 or call 834-2798.

"People who preorder will be notified by phone or email where and when to pick up," Blackwell said.

"The balance of cost must be paid upon pickup. If onions are not picked up, the deposit will be considered a donation to the Boynton Lions Club and onions will be sold."

Proceeds from the sale assist the Lions Club in fulfilling requests from the community for assistance with eyeglasses and other sight needs.
