President's Message

Seasons Greetings,

This is the time of year most people get together with family, friends and loved ones to celebrate their beliefs with one another and any other interested parties.


If you are apart of the Palm Beach Chapter of the Rare Fruit Council International Family, or considering joining us, we would like to wish you a Happy Hanukkah in the tradition of igniting the candles during the "Festival of Lights" and we offer up Kingdom Blessings during this time of commemoration!


To those whom observe the Birth of Christ on December 25th, and the sharing of gifts as a symbol of Love for your Savior, we wish you a Merry Christmas!


Still others may honor Kwanzaa as a conscious opportunity to remember their African Heritage and reinforce the 7-Core Principles while feasting and giving of gifts, we say Habari gani!


Perhaps, you may have another belief in which you do not celebrate during this time of the year. We extend to you warm thoughts of long life, good health & an abundant crop in it's due season!


On behalf of the RFC Board, we salute your past efforts and encourage a fresh interest in taking our club to a new level of sharing, caring and making a difference! Hope to See you at the upcoming Holiday Party & looking forward to tasting the scrumptious dishes.


Have a Joyous Time of Togetherness & a Memorable 2020,


Debra Marcelle-Coney, Ph.D.

Your RFC President
