Annual Geranium sale hosted by Franciscan Healthcare Auxiliary

A spring tradition is helping people from our area get their gardens ready for spring.

The 39th annual Franciscan Healthcare Auxiliary Geranium Sale started Wednesday morning.

The sale runs from 8 in the morning until 6 through Friday.

Proceeds benefit nursing scholarships for Viterbo University and Western Technical College.

A former recipient of the scholarship says the help allowed her to achieve her dreams.

“It’s a very dear place in my heart, because I truly believe that if I wouldn’t have gotten that scholarship back in the 70s, I don’t know if I would be where I am today,” said Lisa Craig, Former geranium sale scholarship recipient.

The sale is being held at 11th and Ferry Streets in La Crosse.
