HPSO Spring Sale
April 9th and 10th
The Hardy Plant Society of Oregon (HPSO) has offered SSHS Music Boosters the opportunity to work at their Spring Plant Sale at the Expo Center in Portland.
We’ve worked this sale in the past, and it’s a substantial earner for student accounts between what HPSO pays us and what we earn in tips.
Saturday April 9: The sale runs from 10-3. 12 people are needed.
Sunday April 10: The sale runs from 10-3.10 people are needed.
Those who sign up meet at the Expo Center in Portland the day of their shift. You must provide your own transportation.
To park at the Expo Center, it will cost $8/vehicle and $7 if you carpool (three or more in the vehicle is considered carpool).
Parents are welcome to work along side their student for their student’s account.
We will be transporting plants from the pay stations to a holding area outside. This will be moderately physically demanding (walking, pushing carts, transferring plants from carts to trunks or back seats). Some of the plants can weigh 50-60 pounds. Most of the full flats of plants are around 20 pounds of lifting.
For those of you who love plants and like to shop a variety of nurseries, there will be 65+ vendors at this sale. HPSO has given us the opportunity to shop the sale before it opens to the public on both days. Shop from about 9:30-10:00 and then we will gather for training. Plan to wear your Saxon colors and/or clothing from your music group. HPSO is very excited to support our program and they want us to show it off.
Sign ups are first come-first served. Maps are available. To sign up or ask questions, call or text Miriam Means at 503-362-1989 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
