Students Selling Poinsettias and Coffee to Raise Money for Summer Trip to Europe


Twenty-two area seniors who want to see the world and develop skills and global-mindedness are planning to travel to Berlin, Prague, the Alps and Paris this summer.

Educator Lynn Ovaska will lead the students on their 13-day educational trip, which includes  visiting historic Checkpoint Charlie, the concentration camp Dachau, the famous Mona Lisa and much more.

With hopes to reduce the financial burden of the program fees, students have organized their efforts to raise funds for this life-changing experience.

Europe 2013 travelers are selling florist-quality poinsettias and award-winning coffee through Tuesday, Nov. 13.

Poinsettias are from a greenhouse in Albuquerque and come in two sizes and a variety of colors. Regular 6″ pots are $14 and large 8 1/2″ pots are $25.

Orders must be received by Tuesday, Nov. 13. The poinsettias will arrive just in time for the holidays and can be picked up Saturday, Dec. 1.

Silver Cup coffee from Seattle is also available in a variety of options. You can purchase whole bean or freshly ground 12 oz. bags in House Medium, French Roast, Swiss Water or Decaf for $13.50.

Orders must be received by Nov. 13. Coffee is a perfect gift for the holidays and will be delivered the first week of December.
