  • The Jacksonville Garden Club's annual Holiday Greens Sale will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 7-8.
    A variety of table arrangements, designer baskets and swags will be available at sale tables located near the Jacksonville Post Office on Friday, and at the intersection of Oregon and California Streets on Saturday.
    The event proceeds benefit local students and beautification projects. Funds go to Oregon Stewardship, which works with high school students on environmental and restorative projects, and the Rogue Community College Foundation, which uses the funds for scholarships to students who wish to study horticulture, landscape, botany, environmental studies, forestry and conservation.
    In addition to providing scholarships, club members are involved in several local beautification projects, including caring for the Jacksonville Post Office garden, annual maintenance of Scheffel-Thurston Park and development of the Peter Britt Garden.
