Mason Boosters Annual Mulch Sale Underway

March 10, 2016

It certainly has been spring-like the last several days, and that reminds us that the annual George Mason High School Athletic Boosters Association spring mulch sale is underway.

For the 23rd year, student athletes will donate their time to load and deliver mulch to homes throughout Falls Church. This is the Athletic Boosters’ largest fundraiser, and proceeds are used to provide student scholarships, end-of-season and Hall of Fame banquets, banners that hang in the Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School gym, as well as big ticket items, including the baseball/softball field lights and equipment purchases.

The high quality, shredded hard-bark mulch comes in three-cubic-foot bags, which sell for $5.00 each. Those interested can purchase mulch online at the Fan Shop. Order forms also are available at the Community Center, Mary Riley Styles Public Library, and all Falls Church City Public Schools offices.

When you order, be sure to note where you want the mulch placed on delivery day. The deadline for orders is March 22. Deliveries will be made on Saturday, April 2.

    I remember this project from BAG ONE. Nearly a decade ago, about 10 of us plus about 10 student athletes delivered about 500 bags of mulch across the city and nearby neighborhoods from our sedan trunks, mini-vans, a pick up truck (yes, just one) and raided about $400 to support GM athletics. Jack Gambill, John Kalepp, Spiro, Harry Shovlin, Martin Green had a fun time doing it. AND the mulch cost $2.50/bag delivered. Such a deal for the many home gardeners of the day.

    It is great to see the ‘tradition’ continue.

    Happy selling, lifting and delivering to all those involved today.
