Monthly Club Meetings

On the second Friday of each month RFC members meet in the Mounts Auditorium at 7:30 PM to hear presentations given by professional and informative speakers on fruit. Before and after the presentations our members enjoy fellowshipping and sharing their fruit growing experiences and knowledge with each other. One of the highlights of our meeting is the Tasting table which is gloriously arrayed with rare tropical and often exotic fruits grown locally by our members.
