Don't forget that the registration deadline for the Albany Tech Invitational is tomorrow, November 27th.  This is a great opportunity for a team practice in Floriculture before the Area CDEs next week.  If you are interested please see the information below and attached flyer and contact Mr. George Paul directly to get your students on the participant list.  He needs an accurate count as they are providing dinner again this year and medals/plaques.
