The spirit of the holiday season is beautifully reflected in the brilliant colors of poinsettias and mistletoe being sold by South Whidbey High School Jazz Band, Wind Ensemble and Choir students. This sale raises funds to cover instrument repair, music, scholarships, and make it possible for these talented students to perform at festivals throughout the Northwest and Canada. The sale runs Oct. 3 through 26.

Lush potted poinsettias will be available in red, white and pink ($12) and 6” sprigs of fresh mistletoe tied with a red ribbon ($8)! Plants will be delivered Dec. 2 through 7.

South Whidbey High School musicians have set an ambitious but achievable goal this year – 100% participation by businesses on the south half of the island, with equally strong support by organizations, clubs, churches and community members. Anyone can buy plants to be donated to the Senior Center or Good Cheer Food Bank. Financial donations are also gratefully accepted.

This is a unique collaboration between community and students to support the award-winning music program at South Whidbey High School. Let’s help these students reach their goal and show them how much our community enjoys music and appreciates the education it takes to make it great!

To order call 360-914-2107 or any SWHS jazz band, wind ensemble or choir member you know.
