The Dr. James A. Forrest Career and Technology Center is hosting two major events on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at the school site across from the St. Maryís County Fairgrounds in Leonardtown. The first event is the annual Plant Sale, which benefits the Forrest Centerís FFA Chapter and CASE agriculture program. The Plant Sale takes place from 8:00 a.m. to noon in the Greenhouse courtyard. Flowering plants for sale include a variety of Wave Petunias, Geraniums, Mandevilla and some Black- Eyed Susan's. Vegetable crops for sale include various Tomato hybrids, Cucumber, Eggplant, Squash, and Lettuce. In addition, some herbs will be available for sale.
In addition to the annual Plant Sale, a Craft/Vendor Bazaar is taking place from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the schoolís Dohrman Conference Center, atrium entrance area and front hallway. Local and regional crafters and vendors will be selling a wide variety of items. The public is invited to come out to enjoy a day of shopping. Proceeds from table rentals and the silent auction will benefit the Forrest Centerís SkillsUSA chapter, which is among the most successful in the state. As a result of that success, the chapter must annually fundraise over $25,000 to cover the cost of leadership training, chapter activities and regional, state & national competitions. For more information about SkillsUSA, go to: www.skillsusa.org.
The event may be recorded and presented on SMCPS Channel 96, the school systemís cable channel, and the Internet. For more information about either event, contact the Forrest Center at 301-475-0242.
A worthy fundraiser indeed! I know many students that have benefitted from their experiences with SkillsUSA!
