Anthony Wayne FFA Chapter Holds Annual Plant Sale

Submitted by: Haley Schmersal, Anthony Wayne FFA Reporter, on May 19

On Saturday, May 13th the Anthony Wayne FFA Chapter held its annual plant sale. Throughout the school year, students grow plants in the chapter’s greenhouse and create shop projects. All of these items are sold or auctioned off at the plant sale. The chapter also received multiple donations from local greenhouses and stores to sell. This is the Anthony Wayne FFA Chapter’s largest fundraiser, and contributes to leadership opportunities and scholarships for FFA members. It is held on the front lawn at Anthony Wayne High School, in conjunction with the art show and walk/run 5k. Whalen Realty is a major sponsor, as they serve as the auctioneers. Senior member Kelsey Arquette said “It was great to see the support from the community and this is one of my favorite events of the year.” The plant sale was very successful this year and we look forward to another great sale next year.
