Flower Basket project moves forward
This is an update regarding the annual downtown hanging flower baskets in St. Joseph. The letter we usually send out had been delayed due to the virus. There was considerable conversation about having the flower baskets this summer. Yes, the project is moving forward. The team is fully aware some of the previous donors may have to reduce their amounts or even not be able to donate. We would like to take this opportunity to have the information shared with all the readers and their family and friends who have not donated in the past. If you have not donated in the past and feel you are wanting to donate (all amounts will be appreciated) you may contact: Carol M. Theisen at 320-363-8496 or email email@example.com or Joyce Faber at 320-363-7682. Looking forward to the beauty these baskets have provided in previous years.
