At the conclusion of the Colorado Garden and Home show last weekend many Denver Area Rotary Clubs came together and with the help of several Boy Scout Troops, a soccer club, and an Interact Chapter 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 about 7,830 flowers were gathered and distributed. In Broomfield, the Rotary Club distributed 216 plants to the residents of Maryel Manor, Salvation Army's Silver Crest, the Broomfield Senior Center, Meals on Wheels, and the Broomfield Skilled Nursing Facility. 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.
