30th Flower Sale Helps Students Grow

Jeff Garretson - April 14, 2016 2:28 pm

A Salina tradition that gives area theatre students a boost for college is ramping up again.

The Salina Community Theatre Guild Geranium and Plant Sale is Friday and Saturday.

“We give two $1,000 scholarships to a Saline County senior who is going to major in something theatre related,” said Florence Jester with the SCT Theatre Guild.

Jester joined in on the KSAL Morning News with a look at how the plant sale benefits college bound students – and the SCT.

“Our focus has always been on the youth theatre,” she said.

“What profit we make, fifty percent of it immediately goes right to the youth theatre.”

Another focus of this year’s sale is a special effort to save the Monarch Butterfly with an annual Monarch’s Promise Asclepias. The specie is a host plant for Monarch caterpillars and non-invasive.

The event is in the lobby at the Salina Community Theatre on Friday and Saturday April 15th and 16th from 8am to 10pm.
