Tulip Announcement

Have you or a loved one been affected by drugs and/or alcohol.  Next week for Red Ribbon Week we will be selling Tulip Bulbs as the Plant the Promise to Stay Drug Free Week also takes place.  Several things will happen when you buy a bulb- first- You can dedicate it in memory of someone or you can dedicate it to someone who has survived and overcome an addiction. Second, the money we raise will be donated to St. Monica’s Rehabilitation Center a non-profit organization that empowers women to overcome substance abuse..  Finally, you get to help make Irving beautiful in the spring time when our gorgeous tulips will bloom! Each tulip will cost $1.00 and we will plant them after school on Friday. We have 200 Tulip bulbs and would love to be able to donate $200 to the St. Monica’s Rehabilitation Center.
