The Blaine chapter of the international women’s group Philanthropic Educational Organization (PEO) is once again selling hanging baskets to raise money for local girls’ scholarships.
Coupons are available now through May 8 at Blaine Bouquets for the hanging baskets, provided by Pacific Growers. Prices are $30 for a 10-inch fuschia basket or 12-inch sun mix basket, or $45 for a 14-inch sun or shade mix basket.
Baskets will be ready to pick up on May 12 from 10 a.m. to noon at Grace Lutheran Church in Blaine.
This is the 12th year Chapter J has held this fundraiser. Last year the group awarded $3,500 in scholarships. This year the group will be giving out $5,750 in scholarships.
Chapter J was founded in Blaine in 1905. Along with the hanging basket fundraiser, it also sponsors garage sales and flower sales throughout the year. The next garage sale is scheduled for August 11.
Applications for Chapter J PEO. scholarships are available at the Blaine High School counselor’s office.
