Event showcases facility improvements, first annual plant sale

The community is invited to see the facility improvements at Union Grove High School during an open house scheduled for Wednesday, May 8 from 3 to 7 p.m.

Improvements include a renovated industrial arts department along with a new culinary lab, art rooms and fitness center.
