Citrus Sale Each year in November Fresh delicious oranges, grapefruit, and apples from Florida are ordered in November and delivered before the December break. See any music student or Music Booster for ordering information. Students can earn up to $10 per box of citrus sold, with earnings going to their Student Account.
Returnable Bottle Collection Boxes (Ongoing/Year-round) The Music Boosters have two returnable collection boxes around Mt. Desert Island. Students may sign up on a rotating schedule to empty and take returnables to a redemption site. 75% of profits will go into the Student’s Account, with the remainder going to the Booster general fund to help support our music programs.
