The spring peepers aren’t out yet, but Vidalia onions are ripening in the Georgia sunshine. Celebrate the end of winter by ordering sweet, juicy Vidalia onions from the Living Communities Foundation. The foundation supports the Palermo Community Center, which, in turn, hosts the Palermo Food Pantry. Proceeds from onion sales go to support the Community Foundation and repair the roof of the Community Center. As a bonus, fresh, mild Vidalia onions make their way to Maine to be roasted, caramelized, sauteed, and put into everything from sandwiches to gourmet soups and quiches. These are larger than “grocery store” onions, and they will keep for over six months.

A 25 lb. box of these beauties costs only $27. Or, go in with friends and relatives and get four boxes for $100. To order, e-mail Connie at pwhitehawk@fairpoint.net or call her at 993-2294 and leave your phone number for confirmation. The onions are due to arrive just before Mothers Day, on Friday, May 10. Pick them up at the Palermo Community Center on Turner Ridge, across from the ball field from about 5 p.m. on May 10 through 5 p.m. on May 11. You will be called when the onions come in. Please pay at the time of placing your order. Checks may be made out to LCF and sent to P.O. Box 151, Palermo, ME 04354. Your support is greatly appreciated, and will enhance the many services the Community Center provides.
