Geranium Sale Supports Scholarships


For the past 27 years, Glacier Symphony and Chorale has been holding a spring flower sale dedicating its proceeds to supporting the organizations youth music education program. The bulk of the funds are used to award music scholarships to local students in grades 9 to 12, encouraging student participation in the Glacier Symphony and Chorale and assisting student musicians in pursuing a career or an avocation in music.

The GSC Geranium Sale is currently underway to purchase the Montana-hardy plants that are locally grown at Plant Land in Kalispell. They come in a variety of intense colors, are easy to grow and will bloom all summer long and into the fall. Colorful 6-inch pots of mixed annuals to complement the geraniums can also be purchased at the same price. The purchase price is $10 per 6-inch pot that includes a $3.50 tax-deductible contribution to the GSC. Pre-orders can be taken through May 11 at the GSC office by calling407-7000, Tuesday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or stop in the Box Office, located at 69 N. Main St. Kalispell.

Geraniums and mixed annuals can also be purchased at Plant Land from a GSC volunteer who will be onsite May 13 & 14 and May 21 & 22 from 10 am to 3 pm. Plant Land is located at 1008 US Hwy 2 East, Kalispell.
