The 36th Annual Rotary Rose Sale Is On Now
It is that time of year again for The Duluth Rotary Club to host its 36th Annual Rose Sale, starting Thursday September 2nd through October 7th. Roses will be sold throughout the Duluth/Superior region for only $25 a dozen and available in red or multi-colored lollipop. Plus for anyone who purchases roses, you will also receive a complimentary coupon book featuring a variety of special offers from a number of businesses in the area who support the fundraiser.
The Rotary Club of Duluth has been around since 1911 working continuously to help out a wide range of communities throughout the Twin Ports Area. These roses are absolutely magnificent and would make a very thoughtful gift for someone special, but will also help local Rotary Club Members continue their mission. According to a Press release from the Club, the annual Rose Sale is their largest fundraiser of the year, and has provided needed funding for neighborly initiatives like:
- Grants to local organizations that help children and less-fortunate individuals by providing food, shelter and clothing
- Community improvements, including the construction of parks and funds that helped light Duluth’s Aerial Lift Bridge and Enger Tower
- Activities for local children, including an annual fishing trip on the St. Louis River
- Activities for seniors
- Provided books for the library
This is just a few of many incredible services the club has provided thanks to the generosity of your monetary support and the countless hours that the Rotary Members put in as well. Wouldn't it be a nice gesture to buy flowers for your employees to show them how much they are appreciated especially in these times we are in right now?
