It’s that time again! Time to collect flowering plants at the conclusion of the Colorado Garden & Home Show at the Colorado Convention Center on Sunday, February 12th and distribute them the next morning, Monday, February 13th.

Colorado Garden & Home Show Interesting in signing up to help collect the flowers?
On Sunday, February 12th you will be admitted FREE, along with your family and friends, to the Garden & Home Show where you can spend the afternoon enjoying the show. Then, at about 6:00 pm we’ll all be called together and given instructions on how to collect and box the flowering plants that are suitable for distribution the next morning. If you’d like to car-pool to the show we’ll talk about it the Club meeting just before the event. It is a good idea to bring a pair of gloves if you don’t want to get your hands dirty.

Interesting in signing up to help with distributing the flowers?
Monday February 13th, we will meet at McDonald’s at 1250 East 1st Avenue, Broomfield (near 120th and Sheridan) at 8:15 to distribute the plants to Maryel Manor, Salvation Army’s Silver Crest, Broomfield Skilled Nursing Center, the Broomfield Senior Center and Meals-on-Wheels. It will take less than 2 hours to distribute the flowers. Remember, each flowering plant delivered brings a big smile to the face of the recipient! And those smiles are wonderful!!!

Please email Gerry to let him know if you would like to help!
