by Trish Lyons, Plant Sale & Auction Committee Chairperson
We are heartbroken to announce the cancellation of the Spring Plant Sale & Auction. The next auction will take place in the fall. We will keep you posted on the where and when of that once those details are ironed out.
With the loss of revenue from the auction ($5,000 on-average) we are trying to think of some other fundraiser that will generate scholarship dollars for our state’s deserving plant science students. If you have any suggestions, please send them to me, Trish Lyons, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meanwhile, if you would like to help fund our scholarships in light of the
loss of our most lucrative annual fundraiser, you can easily do so. Click on the donate icon on the website. Be sure to check the box that indicates your donation be directed to the Scholarship Fund.
