Members of the college community have sold poinsettias, a houseplant popular around Christmas, for several days each fall, usually in November, since 2011. This year the sale will take place Dec. 9 to 11. It will be held in the Atrium of the Connector Building on the Blackwood campus from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

All proceeds from the sale will benefit student scholarships.

Anna Good, 20, a second-year student at CCC, has taken advantage of the poinsettia sale. “I’ve only been here for a year but last year I heard about the poinsettia sale in October,” Good said. “I didn’t know about it benefiting scholarships for students but I knew my mom likes them so I told her about it.”

Lauren Carfolite, 20, another second-year student at CCC, didn’t know about the sale. “This is the first semester of my second year here and I have never heard of the sale. I do apply for scholarships every year though, so knowing about it now, I’ll probably tell my parents about it. I think my mom will like them.”
