At the conclusion of the 60th annual Colorado Garden and Home show many Denver Area Rotary Clubs came together and with the help of several Boy Scout Troops and Arapahoe College’s LaCrosse Team, gathered all of the flowering plants that were in good shape. The purpose of this effort was to place these flowers in the hands of seniors throughout the greater Denver area, with a focus on 60 local senior living facilities. This year 6232 flowers were gathered and distributed …creating 6232 huge, happy smiles.
In Broomfield, the Evening Rotary Club distributed 248 plants to the residents of Maryel Manor, Salvation Army’s Silver Crest, Broomfield Skilled Nursing Facility, the Broomfield Senior Center, and Meals-on-Wheels.

The Rotary Club is looking for more sites that would be interested in receiving flowers for seniors next year at the conclusion of the Colorado Garden and Home Show. If you know of such a place, please contact Gerry Case, Rotarian, at (303) 618-0104.
