Flower Sale Boosts Horticulture Club’s ‘Relay’ Contributions

The Horticulture Club has donated another $300 to Penn College’s Relay for Life team, the fourth consecutive year in which the student organization has contributed to the fight against cancer. Centered in the School of Natural Resources Management and co-advised by horticulture instructor Carl J. Bower and Dennis Fink, assistant professor of horticulture, the group donated $5 from each floral arrangement sold during October’s observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “We are happy to be able to support such a good cause,” Bower said. “Not only does it help the American Cancer Society, it also benefits the horticulture students in their increased volunteerism and knowledge of floral designs.” The latest checkbrings to $1,375 the club’s total support of the college’s Relay for Life effort, for which Information Technology Services’ Kathy A. Kelsey is coordinator.
