The Friday team (ten volunteers) created the most beautiful valentine table arrangements we have ever had to adorn the Aleethia Foundation wounded warrior dinner. Twelve square vases filled with roses, carnations and greens. Festive valentine hearts and heart ribbon made this event so special. Unique baskets of flowers were made for the prize drawings. The warriors and their families loved our flower gifts and the dining room smelled so wonderful with our arrangements.
Thanks to all who continue to support Freedom Petals mission and to the Friday team (you know who you are) who show up every scheduled Friday event.
Saturday was also a very successful event......we made valentine cups for the wounded warriors at the hospital and lots of rose filled bud vases for Fisher House. Thanks to all the volunteers who arrived to make our valentine delivery special for the recuperating service hero's at Walter Reed National Medical Center and the residents of Fisher House Bethesda.
I am working on two events in March. The Friday, March 15th 2013 date is confirmed for a St. Patrick's Day theme to support the Aleethia Wounded Warrior Dinner. An email note is coming soon.
We are still working on the March delivery day to Walter Reed.
Thanks and God Bless,
