Place daffodil orders by Feb. 15 to benefit ACS Daffodil Days are coming March 8-13.
Freshly cut daffodils (10 in a bunch) are the American Cancer Society's symbol of hope. They will be available to businesses and individuals to offer to their employees, clients and friends.
These flowers are grown in the coastal area of Mount Vernon, WA, where soil and climate conditions mimic those of Holland's farm country. You will receive the yellow Dutch Master variety of daffodils featuring long sturdy stems (12-14") with huge trumpets. Your daffodils will arrive in the "tight bud" stage ready to reach full bloom in you home or office after several hours in water.
Daffodil Days raises millions of dollars nationwide to support cancer research, education, advocacy and services. Your gift will not only brighten up your or someone else's day, but will be used directly to support cancer control efforts in your community.
You may order one or several bouquets for $7 each by calling Marlene Amundsen, chairman, at 624-4115. All orders are to be prepaid. Flowers will be delivered the week of March 8th to the address indicated on the order form.
All daffodils must be ordered by Feb. 15 and we are anxious to deliver a bouquet to you or anyone you want to have a bouquet.
In 1990, cancer death rates started to decline for the first time in history. Although more people are developing cancer each year, more are surviving. An estimated 8.4 million Americans are alive today that have a history of cancer. In addition, we know the lifestyle factors such as not smoking, eating right, and avoiding sun exposure could prevent tens of thousands of cancer cases every year.
