This year, for our Fall Sale Fundraiser, we will be offering Poinsettias for sale!  This is replacing our usual cookie dough fundraiser this year.  Due to many of these products being perishable and our facilities limitations due to COVID restrictions, we are offering this much more COVID-friendly option to fulfill your holiday gift and décor needs this season!  Looking for a Teacher’s gift or a gift for your co-workers or friends and family?  These would be a perfect way to add cheer to their 2020 holiday season!  These also look great as a table centerpiece, on your fireplace hearth, or in your entryway to bring beauty and color to your home this winter.

 All poinsettias will be sourced from local grower, Berns Garden Center in Middletown, OH.  We will be offering the following options for sale:


6.5 Inch Pot

12-18 inches tall, 18 inches across the top

Colors Red, pink, white



8 inch pot

24-27 inches tall, 32 inches across the top

Colors:  Red, Pink, White



Poinsettias are on sale NOW through Thursday, November 26, 2020 and pickup/delivery will be on December 4, 2020.  Each family must pick-up/take delivery on 12/4 as these plants are sensitive to cold temperatures and must be kept safe from extreme temperatures, so please plan to keep inside.


To order your poinsettias, please use the link below:
