Floral students whip up milkshakes


Last updated 2/16/2021 at 8:10am

RITZVILLE – Lind-Ritzville FFA floral students created and sold Valentine Day floral arrangements representing strawberry milkshakes.

"The milkshake arrangement is one that the experienced floral students saw and have wanted to make over the past couple years," Amanda Mattingly, the middle school agriculture teacher who took the lead on the project said. "We finally had a good opportunity to make it happen this year."

Mattingly said while several students were involved in the planning process, the five students who were able to be at the school to make the arrangements were Alyssa Williams, Taylor Galbreath, Addy Colbert, Zoe Galbreath and Reagan Snider.

"The arrangements that the students plan and sell, such as these, fund future arrangements for them to practice specific skills," Mattingly said.

She said the Lind-Ritzville School District has a floral class at both the middle school and high school, with about 15 students on the FFA Floral Team.
