The project of revitalizing the Junior Arches/Shasta Daisy project that the alumni association is involved in has hit a couple of snags, and we are looking for help so that this year' senior class can walk to the graduation platform under the traditional arches of Shasta Daisies.
Kirk Richter, class of '77 and his horticulture class at the high school planted a large area of rooted cuttings, thanks to the donation of Conway Spitler, but it wasn't enough of an area to provide the flowers needed for the graduation arches. A call was sent out for donations of more cuttings from anyone who has Shasta Daisies in their yard, but none have been received.
A second glitch that has occurred is that the Horticulture class, which was being sponsored by Ventura College has been canceled, so there is no organized group to care for the existing plants and to plant any new material that is received. This topic will be brought up at the next alumni board meeting in February to see what assistance the alumni can give to Kirk to keep this project going.
So what is now needed is for people to come forward with flowers for the arches for graduation so this tradition, which was started in 1940, can once again become a reality after an absence of 20 years.
Anyone having plant material that we can use for planting more area of the school, or flowers that can be used for the Junior arches this year, please call Kirk at 524-8423 or the alumni office at 524-0416, or e-mail: The alumni association is very interested in getting this tradition restarted.
