Happy Summer.  Since we last posted a blog spot in June, we have been busy supporting Wounded Warriors and their families with flowers.  In July we made table arrangements for our second Aleethia Foundation Friday night dinner.  It was held at the Rock Creek Mansion near Walter Reed Bethesda.  Freedom Petals Volunteers Linda, Clare, Barbara, Joan, and Marilyn created 15 colorful table arrangments and 2 flower baskets for their drawing.   The flowers made the room smell wonderful and the arrangements added a sunny happy touch as usual.  We will be supporting the October 19th dinner in Arlington, Va.
I received a thoughtful thank-you card to Freedom Petals from a wounded warrior family at Walter Reed.  I was delighted with a picture they sent me of their children and Sean.  I wish the family a speedy recovery and I'm so glad our flowers brightened their room. 

Today, 13 August is a special day for  Marli and Nate and Freedom Petals was so excited to provide them with a bridal bouquet and boutonniere for their wedding.  Anne Harvey my partner from the Herndon Florist donated the flowers to make this occassion so special with flowers. Thank-you to the Freedom Petals Family.  Thanks to Margaret and Barbara for getting us involved in this blessed event.
