Thanks to our crew for the day: Mike Hunter, Jed Butcher, the fabulous Wendy Merb-Brown, Larry Snyder, Cliff and Evelyn Houk, Mike Wootton, John Deno, Julia Nehls, Bob Gallagher, and our fearless leader - Jim Thomas!

Annual Rose Sale - May 6, 2015

We need your help to make this year's Rose Sale a success.  If every member could sell just 10 dozen roses we could complete our goal of selling 250 dozen. We do it the week before Mother's Day so anyone with a mother is usually very glad to have the opportunity to make their mother happy.  If everyone contributes it will be easy work.

Also, there are some time slots still open for volunteers to help with delivering the roses on May 7th, especially in the afternoon.  You will pick up the roses up at the rear entrance of the Elks Lodge on Union Street next to the bridge over the Hocking river.

For tickets or more information, call John Deno at 740-591-7226.

One dozen is $20 and to have roses shipped via priority mail is $27.
