Bower Jr., horticulture instructor and club adviser. “Whether that is you, your friends or family.” Anyone with questions can contact Bower at ext. 3534. The annual poinsettia sale will begin Wednesday, Nov. 30, and continue from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. weekdays (closed Saturdays and Sundays) while inventory lasts.
