2015 Poinsettia Fundraiser

Announcing the GSSC 2015 Red Poinsettia Fund Raising Event.
The Genealogical Society of Stanislaus County Board voted to support a repeat of last year’s
successful poinsettia sale. Please support this fundraising effort. Presales will begin at our
October 20, 2015 meeting and conclude at the November 17, 2015, Ancestor Night meeting.
As in past years, each beautiful 16”-18” tall plant is $10. Plant pick up will be set for early
December. This activity is vital to the success of our great organization. Remember, these
beautiful, long lasting, plants make great gifts for friends and family, and are a lovely
addition to your own home decor.
