During the month of April, Wells Rotarians will be taking orders for sweet, delicious Georgia-raised Vidalia Onions.  This program has been extremely popular for the last several years with the Augusta, Maine Rotary Club and the Augusta club has graciously included the Wells club into the distribution.
The onions come in 25-pound bags (approximately 30-35 onions depending on the size) and sell for $28.  Half bags are also available (15-18 onions) at a cost of $17.  The onions are shipped immediately after being harvested and should arrive early to mid-May.  Congdon’s Doughnuts on Route 1 has offered their facility for the pick-up site.  Each order comes with a complimentary locally-sourced cookbook filled with onion recipes as well as tips on storage.  The deadline for placing an order is April 29, 2021.
If you are interested in ordering, please contact Wells Rotarian Doug Bibber at 207-468-2667 or dougb@bibberfuneral.com or you can order directly with any other Wells Rotarian.
The proceeds from the program last year supported local youth initiatives, the local food pantry and provided scholarships to Wells High School seniors and adults attending secondary schools.  We hope to be able to duplicate those efforts again for 2019.
