Nyssa green thumbs get ready for flower sale on May 2


Flower baskets grown by the Nyssa High School greenhouse class go on sale Monday, May 2, starting at 7 a.m. in the Ag Building.

The baskets are beautiful, with a variety of colors to choose from. Don’t delay, as the baskets typically sell out quickly. The cost is $30 per basket.

“Support FFA, buy our baskets!” said class member Ronaldo Bueno.
