Shriners Sweet Vidalia Onions Are Here [AUDIO]

For the last several years the Casper Shrine Club has had a unique fundraiser that is always highly anticipated.

Every year at this time of the year folks start looking for the sweet Vidalia onions to show up….and they have. Starting today Wednesday, April 25th, and until they last , 17,000 lbs of Vidalia onions will be available for purchase from 9-6 at the Casper Shrine Club at the corner of 39th and Coffman, right behind the Sunrise Shopping Center. A 10# bag will cost you $15. Last year it only took 3 days to sell out , so if you aren’t quick, you will miss out. Past Potentate Craig Warner joined us this morning to talk about the onions and the sales this week.
