It’s an annual holiday tradition: The Satellites Auxiliary is holding its poinsettia sale.

The poinsettias range in price from $6 to $11 and are available in an array of colors, including red, white, pink, red with white splotches, and blue with gold. The plants vary in size from 4.5 inches to 7.5 inches and by the number of blooms.

A student stopped by the Satellites Auxiliary’s poinsettia table last year in Rocket Hall.

Fresh wreaths measuring 14 inches also are available for $11.

“Poinsettias add such a lovely, elegant touch to the holidays,” Lynn Brand, president of the Satellites Auxiliary, said. “We hold this sale as a service to our campuses. We keep our costs low, and the small amount we make goes to scholarship funds.”

Poinsettia order forms must be received by Friday, Nov. 22. Email, fax to 419.383.3206, or drop off to Volunteer Services in Dowling Hall Room 75.

Orders will be available for pickup from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, in the Rocket Hall Lobby and Thursday, Dec. 5, in the Four Seasons Bistro Atrium. All poinsettias will be foiled and sleeved.

Payment is due at the time of pickup; options include cash and checks, as well as payroll deduction on Health Science Campus.

The Satellites Auxiliary is a group designed to promote education, research and service programs; provide support of patient programs in accordance with the needs and approval of administration; conduct fundraising events; and offer volunteer services.
