Salisbury Academy family day celebrates and beautifies

SALISBURY — As part of the school’s 20th anniversary celebration, students, parents, faculty, and staff gathered Saturday to plant daylilies on the campus of Salisbury Academy.
“It was great to see caring members of the Salisbury Academy family working together for this 20th anniversary event,” said Head of School Diane Fisher. “The planting of these daylilies will serve as are reminder of the bright spirit of Salisbury Academy for years to come.”
Side by side students, parents, faculty, and staff planted two 12-foot beds with a variety of 85 daylilies each, the customary flower to celebrate a 20th anniversary. The beds were placed on both sides of the main school entrance.
“It was an absolute pleasure to come out on Saturday morning and help to plant flowers to beautify the entrance to Salisbury Academy,” said Greg Shields, parent of Phoebe Shields, a fourth-grade student. “The spirit of volunteerism that flows through the school with parents, students, and faculty working together to make their school and community better is an integral part of Salisbury Academy. Watching one parent dig a hole, while a fourth grade student puts in the flower and a faculty member has the hose ready to water it was fantastic. It validates my wife’s and my decision to send our children to the school in Salisbury that we believe is doing to most to shape the future leaders of this and other communities.”
The Parents of Salisbury Academy Association provided the funds to purchase the daylilies and Godley’s Garden Center and Nursery donated the labor to prepare the beds.
Saturday morning’s event was one of several during a year-long celebration, including a flag raising ceremony held last month and other events to come in 2013.
