Barton Plant Sale - Thank You!
Wednesday, May 17, 2017 7:15 AM

Barton Plant Sale - thank you!

Many thanks to all the people who helped make the 2017 Barton Plant sale a success. We did it!!  We surpassed our goal of $80,000. Roughly half of that total goes to the Barton Foundation! 

Thank you to all of the students who got out there and sold green plants(!) and to the teachers who helped keep track of everything and encouraged the students along the way. An extra thanks to Pete, Allison and Chuck for their assistance as well as the Proetz family for their help. A big shout out to all of the Uppers who arrived at school bright and early on Friday morning to unload plants from the trucks and continued to help throughout the day (we are grateful to their teachers for excusing them to help…we couldn’t do it without them). We would also like to thank our engineers Rick and Luis for their extra time and patience. Many thanks as well to Tom Hockenberry for donating native plants and Studio 2 for donating donuts for our Uppers helpers.  And we cannot forget to share our appreciation of the stellar Barton office staff, Becky, Nasra and Cierra, who supported the plant sale committee in many ways.

A BIG thank you to all of the incredible plant sale volunteers: Ali Naughton, Anne-Marie Fischer, Annie Sparrows, Annik Miller, Arwen Wilder, Carolyn Ramberg, Dave Van Hattum, Eleonore Balbach, Elizabeth Christensen, Erin Klug, Genevieve Bennett, Jeanette, Jeni Heineman, Jerri Wagner, Jessie Krohn, Julia Mullin, Kari Sharff, Katey Scott, Katie  Scott, Kirsten Walstead, Kristi Smith Knutson, Lara Roy, Laura Moench, Martha McQuade, Mary Scavotto, Meg Paschall, Mel Muller, Melissa Gould, Michele Nealen, Molly Cooper, Molly Hilkene, Marianne Carolan, Pam Hockenberry, Tom Hockenberry, Sarah Meysenburg, Shannon Bierbaum, Shella Treon, Tami Moon, Tracy Vacura, Victoria Lauing, Victoria Neis, Kris Mandler, Norah Garrison, Wendy Auldrich, Kris Woelber, Michelle Pryce, Sarah Kuzel-Leslie, Heather Cholat, Brenda Johnson, Catherine Myers and Tony Siebenaler-Ransom.
