Nursery sale benefits Project Graduation

The annual Project Graduation Nursery Sale took place Friday and Saturday in the parking lot of Bobby Ray Elementary.
People took advantage of the spring weather to load up on trees and bushes.
Prices ranged from $6 for pots of flowers to $120 for large evergreen trees.
Margie Carter had her eyes on an ornamental evergreen shrub.
“I had azaleas which were pretty when they bloomed but they got too big,” said Carter. “I had them cut down. I really do like the looks of this one. It would look very pretty behind my mailbox.”
This sale is one of Project Graduation’s biggest fundraisers of the year. The money raised will go toward Project Graduation, an all-night party held at the Civic Center on graduation night. The event is adult-supervised and is alcohol free.
WCHS graduation is scheduled for Friday, May 23.
Nursery stock for the sale was donated from area nurseries and included a wide range of flowers, shrubs and trees including several in bloom such as pink and white dogwoods, redbuds and flowering crabapples.
 “The local nurseries have always been very generous and we thank them for their support,” said Project Graduation chairperson Paula Wanamaker.
