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. In the event of an inside ceremony, the flowers are used to decorate the gym. This is also a fundraiser for the Senior Class that helps pay for the Senior Breakfast. These flowers are available for parents of seniors to purchase and take home after the ceremony has concluded.

The cost of each flower is $23. Please include payment when returning the order form and make checks payable to Metamora Township High School. Turn order forms into Mrs. Angie Kimbro (office located near the auditorium). Forms and payments can also be sent to:
