SPECIAL MEMORIAL DAY PROMOTION
This year I wanted to do something special to honor the memory of our fallen heroes. So I've found a very special way to do that.
The Memorial Day Flowers Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization partnering with civic groups, florists, and small business owners to put long-stemmed roses on the graves of veterans for Memorial Day. They have been doing this since 2011 in Arlington National Cemetery (last year placing 120,000 roses) and in hundreds of communities all across the country!
I made arrangements with the Foundation to have 250 roses delivered to the shop just before Memorial Day weekend. Because of this purchase, The Memorial Day Flowers Foundation will place 150 additional roses on headstones at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day.
So that we too can participate in this important celebration this Memorial Day, I'm inviting you to come to our shop on the Saturday and Sunday before Memorial Day and take a free flower to place on the grave of a veteran in your local cemetery. If you don't have a deceased family member who is a veteran, you can still take a flower and decorate the grave of ANY veteran to remember them.
Please note that I have 250 flowers being delivered. This offer is only good while supplies last, so come in early to ensure you get a rose.
It would be great if you would take pictures of your families decorating the graves and post them on our Facebook page or send them to me via email. I'd like to make a collage of our celebrating this important holiday to remind us all of what this day is truly about.
Another exciting part of this promotion is that we will be presenting some Quilts of Valor quilts to a few recipients on Saturday . Deb Brazil will be at the shop representing the Quilts of Valor organization and will conduct the ceremony. So if you are interested in seeing real time how much the recipients appreciate receiving a special quilt, come to the shop on Saturday, May 28 . When we finalize the exact time, I will send out an email to confirm the details. So save the date!
