At the conclusion of the Colorado Garden and Home show, on February 23rd, many Denver Area Rotary Clubs came together and with the help of several Boy Scout Troops and a Pom Squad, gathered many 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 6740 flowers were gathered and distributed …creating 6740 huge, happy smiles. 

In Broomfield, the evening Rotary Club distributed 184 plants to the residents of Maryel Manor, Salvation Army’s Silver Crest, the Broomfield Skilled Nursing Facility, the Broomfield Senior Center, and Meals-on-Wheels.  Transportation of the flowers was accomplished in a Barber’s Poultry truck. 

 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.
