    A total of 243 crates of clementines have been donated by LGS Sales in New Jersey to all schools in the greater Southern Aroostook area.
    This is the sixth year this company has generously donated them.
    The clementines were delivered to Houlton Southside, Houlton High and Houlton Elementary schools on Dec. 16.

    Just two tiny “Darling Clementines” can fulfill the USDA’s recommended daily requirement of Vitamin C for an average person on a 2,000 calories-a-day-diet.
    And, of course, citrus consumption has been consistently shown to boost the human immune system, help keep bones and teeth healthy and provide you with extra protection against skin disorders and diseases such as the common cold.
