Another Great Year 2017

As 2017 comes to a close, we reflect on another great year and incredible journey bringing joy to our warrior heroes with flowers.  This
           was only made possible because of you, the Freedom Petals volunteers.
Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you for your time, friendship, and creativity. 

The end of 2017 was a  huge success, October was our last flower event.  Happy Halloween flowers were shared at the Aleethia dinner.  Lots of spiders, pumpkins and scarecrows.  November was a very successful speaking engagement at the Annapolis Naval Academy garden club.  Marilyn and I helped the members make special bedside mugs filled with fall flowers for a local veteran home. 

This past fall I began my next chapter in life, watching my new beautiful funny granddaughter, Miss Avery.  She is such a joy.  With that said I will need lots more support from all of you to keep this mission going for another year.

Our next flower event will be Friday, January 19th, creating flower arrangements for an Aleethia Foundation warrior dinner.  I will pick up flowers at Trader Joes Monday morning 15 January and Friday, 19 January.  But I need help picking up the flowers on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (16 through 18 January).  They need to be brought back to my garage, put in buckets and then put in the florist cooler.  I know a few of you know this drill..... as you may have picked them up before.  
​Have a blessed holiday and safe travels! ​
God Bless, Michele
