Grow Veggies for QuickStart! at Greer Elementary School
Grow Veggies! Clean Up Day at Greer Elementary was held on Sunday, March 13, 2011. Volunteers from the Piedmont Landscape Association, led by PLA Board Member, Jessica Primm, really stepped up for QuickStart! Second grade teachers, Karen Morris, Jennifer Harnois and Kristen Wray, led by Barbara Watson, Lead PE teacher at Greer, pitched in too, as did Tessa Pehanick, QCV President and Lynda Harrill, QCV VP and QuickStart Tennis Coordinator. It was a wonderfully productive day!
