MVHS Ohana

Selling: Watermelon

“[Selling watermelon is] a tradition in Ohana, but we’ve come to like it because it’s the only healthy option.” —club vice president senior Kelly Morali (far left)

“[I called] Trader Joe’s two hours before we went, and I was like ‘Do you have mini watermelons still?’ and they were like ‘Oh let’s check,’ and then they were like ‘Yeah we have a couple.’ And I’m like ‘I was looking to buy in bulk. Like 36.’” —club president senior Prachi Gupta (far right)

MVHS Leo Club

Selling: Starbucks

“We thought it’d be pretty warm today, so we wanted something that’s cold to drink. People like coffee, I like coffee, so we decided to go with coffee.” —secretary junior Rahul Sawhney (pictured below, selling a coffee to French teacher Sarah Finck)

How would you describe the atmosphere here in one word?

MVHS Research Club

Selling: Apple pies

“The club commission said all the food we wanted was taken, so we were kind of resorting to any last-minute things, so it was really between Otter Pops, Apple pies and Popeye’s chicken. Anything that we could sell, basically.” —officer senior Pallavi Sripathi (far left)
