Poinsettia sale is underway

Here it is October again and that means the annual T.T.T. Chapter P poinsettia sale is under way. We fully expect our plants this year to be among the most beautiful we have ever had. The price this year is $12, which is because of a slight increase in the price we pay to the distributor. The poinsettias will come from Armstrong Nursery, which has over 100 years of experience in growing magnificent plants.

The plants will come in 6.5” pots, be 14.5” to 16.5” tall and be available in either red or white. And did I mention that they will be only $12? It is sure to be money well spent, as the whole purpose of this fundraiser is to send deserving fourth grade girls to accredited summer camps.

The camp experience is life-changing for these girls. For some, it is the first time they are away from home and that can be a scary proposition for a ten-year-old. They may be shy and withdrawn when they leave for camp but when they return they are so chatty and happy that it’s hard to believe these are the same girls. They have made new friends, experienced new activities and learned that they could accomplish things they never dreamed of.

We have so appreciated your support of our past fundraisers and we hope we can count on you again this year. You can purchase your plants through any T.T.T. Chapter P member during the month of October and through the third week of November. But don’t wait too long to order, because when the sale is over, the sale is over! Also, we will be at the Eagle’s Nest ticket kiosk from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. every Tuesday in October.

If you would like to order online, you may send a note to laurieoverson@centurylink.net. She will reply to you promptly. Or you can place your order by calling Laurie Overson at 535-4322. Delivery will be on Friday, November 30.

Also, I need to remind you that we are a 501(c)(3) organization and, as such, we gladly accept cash donations, which are tax deductible for you to the extent legally allowed.

Thank you for helping us to send girls to camp!
