The Social Events Committee of the Michigan City Area Schools Transportation Department will host its 11th Annual Mother’s Day Plant and Flower Sale on Friday, May 10th. The sale runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the front lawn of the Service Building located at 1100 S. Woodland Ave, Michigan City, IN, directly behind Joy Elementary School. Cash, credit, and debit will be accepted.

This year the sale will feature a large selection of potted plants, flowers, flats, and hanging baskets grown locally by Mark’s Farm Market and Greenhouses.

Gary’s Hot Dog Cart will be on site from 11 p.m. to 4 p.m. serving up a jumbo Vienna hot dog combo with chips and a drink for $8, as well as homemade ice cream single scoop cones for $2.

The MCAS Transportation Social Events Committee is made up of school bus drivers and monitors. The committee raises money so they can supply children riding their buses who are in need of gloves, hats, scarves, winter coats, and other items. Proceeds are also used to support the Transportation Department’s participation in local parades and Halloween events, where they hand out more than 2,000 pieces of candy and school supply items each year.
