WELCOME TO RFCI, TAMPA BAY!

 

 UPCOMING MEETINGS



The Tampa Bay Chapter of the Rare Fruit Council is sad to announce that Life Member Bill Vega died on October 5, 2018.

Whether it was setting up the room for our monthly meetings, designing and building our award-winning State Fair horticultural booths, helping run Citrus Celebration, or getting plants and helping coordinate our USF plant sale . . . Bill was always giving to the organization. He will be greatly missed, both for what he did and for who he was.
