Thank you to all the teachers and students who worked hard to sell plants and keep track of everything. We would also like to thank our engineers Rick and Luis for their extra time and patience. A big shout out to Studio 2 for donating the donuts for the Uppers who came early and helped unload plants from the trucks. Many thanks also to Tom Hockenberry for donating plants.
And finally, we want to acknowledge the plant sale committee members who are graduating from our ranks, but will be remembered fondly for their dedication, hard work and combined 20 plus years of experience making Barton Plant Sales great.
