We are confirmed for two final 2012 Flower Events. First the Alleethia Foundation is hosting a Date Night /Wounded Warrior Dance on the Walter Reed Bethesda base. We have volunteered to make wrist corsages for this wonderful occasion. Corsage making event is Friday, November 30th. We will start at 8:30 am (my house) and need to make 50 corsages. We are waiting for more details on the time we need to have them ready and where to deliver them.
Anne from the Herndon Florist is teaching Barb and I how to make the wrist corsages so training will be given to all the volunteers. We may be asking for some supply donations once we find out what we need.
Our holiday WR hospital flower event will be the weekend of December 7th (Friday) and December 8th (Saturday). Same time 9am to 1pm on Friday and Saturday 9am till we are done. Please start collecting holiday cups for this event. We have gold and white sleighs for the nurses stations and for Fisher House.
Please RSVP to this note of dates you can help and mark your calendars.
I want to thank all who volunteered last month and everyone who brings us wonderful vases and ribbon. Thanks to all who purchased Silpada Jewelry for our fundraiser. We raised $300 for Freedom Petals. We also received a check this month from the ever supporting Greenbriar Garden Club, one of our first speaking engagements when Freedom Petals was founded.
