Clover Days coming in March
The local Tractor Supply Store invites students to come to the store and stand near the cash register to help sell clovers. The Clovers are $1 each, but you may make a bigger donation than one dollar. Last year, 2 different customers made a $100 donation the same Saturday morning!
The manager will give instructions and keep a list of students that participate.
Clover Sales run from April 26-May7 at the Local Tractor Supply Store.
