BELLVILLE, Ohio — The Clear Fork FFA chapter held its annual fruit and nut sale this year. The chapter had a no contact ordering system so that the members and the customers could stay safe. Members delivered fruits and nuts through a no contact drive thru or by delivering the orders themselves.

The fruits and nuts available included oranges, grapefruits, a variety of apples, peanuts, cashews and mixtures of nuts. These items came from out of state farms that support several FFA chapters locally and nationwide. Overall, the sale was successful.
