Chino Valley High School Student Council members played Cupid for the morning this past Thursday, making early deliveries with Flower-grams the day before Valentine's Day.
They delivered about 100 long-stemmed red roses, 25 boxes of candy or a combination of both, with a special message attached to each. For several weeks, the student council took orders from just about anyone - students, teachers, staff or parents. The Flower-gram project was a fundraiser for the student council.
Teams of student council members entered classrooms and offices with their deliveries. You could pretty much say it made everyone's day to get a Flower-gram.
In math class, Adriana Vasquez, a sophomore, received a rose from her cousin Deisy Molinero, a freshman, while seniors Jamie Thompson and Olivia Schmidt were all smiles when they read notes attached to roses sent by their mothers.
Senior Christian Gonzales' mouth dropped open as he read that his Flower-gram was from his friend Taz' mother.
"That's so nice," Christian exclaimed.
One student, Shawnee Clarida, got three roses from different people, and several Flower-grams came from anonymous senders, one signed "from your anonymous lover." Not sure how that could happen anonymously, but, oh well.
Overall, council members said the Flower-grams were a "good fundraiser" for the council.
