Earlier in October, members of Grier’s Garden Club created festive pumpkin centerpieces to celebrate fall. The students selected the pumpkins themselves from the Hoover family’s farm B&D Acres in Tyrone, Pennsylvania. When they returned to Grier campus, they worked with club advisor Mrs. Fernandes to arrange the flowers ordered from a local florist to create lovely fall centerpieces. The flowers they used were: Viking mums, alstromeria, yellow daisies, mini carnations, purple statice, solidago (or goldenrod), and glycerin oak leaves. Students decorated their rooms with the finished pieces or gave them as gifts to others.
