More than 20 students and adults volunteered to plant more than 500 iris bulbs around South Tahoe Middle School on Oct. 26. The planting was done as a part of the national Make A Difference Day, a day of national community service.
The planting was the culmination of several weeks of preparing the bulbs for the planting, according to Club Live Advisor Larry Lambdin Workability students of Judy Stevens, Pam Taylor and Club Live members spent many hours cleaning, separating and trimming the bulbs in preparation. The flower bulbs were donated by Aaron and Debbie Hearne; neighbors Lambdin.
Club Live selected various beds around school to be planted. In the future, the groups hopes that the yellow and burgundy flowers will bloom and make the school an attractive site.
Club Live has participated in many Make-A Difference Day projects over the past 17 years. The club promotes a healthy lifestyle free of drugs and alcohol. The club was supported by Workability Department at STHS including Jill Colvin, Kathy Woods and STMS principal Beth Delacour.
