At the conclusion of the Colorado Garden and Home Show this year, many Denver Area Rotary Clubs came together and with the help of several Boy Scout Troops, 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. This year 7810 flowers were gathered and distributed …creating 7810 huge, happy smiles.
In Broomfield, the Evening Rotary Club distributed 208 Flowering plants to the residents of Maryel Manor, Salvation Army’s Silver Crest, Broomfield Skilled Nursing Facility, Broomfield Senior Center, and Meals-on-Wheels. The Morning Rotary Club delivered 178 Flowering plants to other facilities in the area, including Balfour Retirement Community, to bring the total number of Flowering plants distributed in this area this year to 386 plants
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. For additional information, contact Gerry Case, Rotarian, at (303) 618-0104.
