Annual Graduation Geranium Sale
It is an MTHS tradition to use red geraniums at graduation to spell out the graduation year on the bleachers as a backdrop to an outside ceremony. This is also a fundraiser for the senior class that helps to pay for the Senior Breakfast. After the ceremony you are able to take your flowers home. We need your help to keep this tradition alive.
The cost of each flower pot is $23.00. The Large Red Geraniums are in a 12″ pot and includes 3 plants. Make checks payable to MTHS. Orders may be given to Angie Kimbro in the school Auditorium Office or mailed to MTHS Attn: Angie Kimbro, 101 W. Madison, Metamora IL 61548. Please submit your order form and payment no later than Friday, April 23, 2021.
