September - October Events

Can't believe that summer is coming to a close and the kids are back to school.  I also can't believe that FP is in its 3rd year of bringing flowers to our wounded and their families.    You the FP volunteers are so talented and work very hard at our flower events. I wanted to thank all of you for giving your weekends and valuable time to this simple rewarding way to say thank you to our service members.  What a journey this has been!

Freedom Petals has been blessed with many new opportunities to bring smiles to our wounded warriors.  We are now creating beautiful flowers for the Alleethia Foundation dinners , this summer we supported a wounded warrior wedding - Herndon Florist donated a bridal bouquet and boutonniere and we are now taking lots of bouquets to Fisher House on the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Base after we deliver to the Hospital.  

Our September flower event will be Friday, 28 September 9 am - 1 pm and Saturday, 29 September 9am until we are done.
Please reply to this note if you can attend so I can plan accordingly. 

In October we will be supporting the Aleethia Dinner on Friday, 19 October.  Flower Event will be Friday, 19 October at 9 to 1pm. only. 

***On Saturday, 29 September 10 to 12 I'll be having a SILPADA Party (silver jewelry) as a fundraiser for Freedom Petals.   15% of all the sales will go to FP so we can supplement our flower donations with fresh flowers.   Web sales will be available too.  Just in time for gift giving.***
