Future Farmers of America to hold plant sale fundraiser

LAHAINA – The Lahainaluna High School FFA Chapter is holding a plant sale on Saturday, Dec. 19, to raise funds to help student members cover travel expenses to attend the FFA State Conference on Oahu in March.

Some examples of plants that will be offered are plumeria, hybrid ti, taro, croton, ginger, palms, and various exotic and native landscape plants.

If you’re interested in buying some plants, stop by the Lahaina Cannery Mall parking lot (south end below Honoapiilani Highway). The students will start at 8:30 a.m. and end at noon.

In related news, the Lahainaluna PTSA would like to thank the 105 seniors that turned in their paperwork by the “early bird” special deadline. The cost is now $50 to attend this once-in-a-lifetime event with your classmates up until April 30; after that date, the price rises to $75. Complete your Project Graduation paperwork as soon as possible and turn it into the main office.

The Sacred Hearts School Choir, under instructor Lori Ulmann, recently delivered a heartwarming performance at The Wharf Cinema Center.

Lahainaluna High School will be participating in the 2016 Relay for Life. This amazing event has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, raising nearly $5 billion to fight cancer. It will be held at St. Anthony, and all participating students must turn in their forms and money no later than Thursday, Dec. 17. For more information, see Mrs. Carlos.

On behalf of the Lahainaluna High School Library program, we would like to thank the Lahainaluna community for your support during our Barnes and Noble Book Fair. Together, we raised $302, which will be used to purchase new equipment for the library. Also, a big mahalo to Barnes and Nobel for their partnership. Imua Lahainaluna!
