Santa Paula children participated in the Optimist Club sunflower seed planting this week. The event was held at the Blanchard Community Library in conjunction with the library’s “Dig Into Reading” summer reading program.

The scene was reminiscent of Jack planting his magical beans, however, the children were not hoping for a chance to meet a giant. Instead, their eyes were fixed on being one of five children to grow the tallest sunflower plant.

Eight weeks from now, on Tuesday, August 13 the judging will take place. The five winning children will each win $15. A photo of the child next to their sunflower plant is the requirement.
