Dear RHHS Band Family, It is time to get those last minute fruit orders in to us. Late email orders will be accepted through midnight tonight. After that, please email for availability of extra fruit. You know our motto is, "It's never too late to order fruit!". I'd like to remind everyone that this is a major fundraiser for the RHHS Band and we want everyone to participate in whatever way you can - buy fruit, sell fruit, unload fruit, deliver fruit, eat fruit ... you get the idea. Thank you for your support! Kathy and Inga Fruit Sale coordinators

The dress code will be strictly enforced, but you wear as many layers
