Although the weather was still cold, that didnít stop spring arriving, during the 27th Annual Hospice Spring Bouquet Sale, held March 6 Ė 9, 2013.
Eager anticipation and smiles greeted our volunteer drivers, as they delivered the bouquets, to the local area schools and businesses, for staff and associates. Our customers greeted us with smiles and joyful conversation, as they stopped to pick up their bouquets, as well.
It was a great success! A total of 662 bouquets were sold. A total of $7,110 was collected in donations, for Hospice Foundation of Buffalo.
Our grateful thanks goes out to all who purchased bouquets. A special thank you to our volunteers, Carol Reiber, Shelba Klingensmith, JoAnn Feuz and Melanie Ploetz, who helped to condition, count and prepare our presale orders. A special thank you to our volunteer drivers, Tom Kazmark, Bob Ostman, Dave Farrington and Hap Bettinger, who delivered our presale orders.
We especially thank the businesses that sold bouquets from their establishments: Concord Medical Group, Springville Primary Care, town of Concord Town Hall, Rite Aid Pharmacy, Spring Creek Pharmacy, Shear Brilliance Hair Design, Apple Dumpliní and Cozy Corners.
A special thank you to the Springville Journal, WSPQ and the Money Saver, for their advertising, promoting the sale. The success of the sale would not have been possible, without all of you! Many, many thanks to all, for your continued support for Hospice, again this year.
