Soroptimists now taking flowers
It must be spring because Lower Valley Soroptimists are now
taking orders for geraniums and wave petunias for spring planting.
The annuals will be ready for delivery May 1, according to
Barb Miller, co-chair of the plant Soroptimist fund-raiser. Cost is $10 per
dozen or $1.55 each.
She said all orders must be prepaid. Proceeds from the plant
sale will benefit the Soroptimist community service and scholarship projects.
To order the flowers that are grown locally at Sunshine
Greenhouses of Sunnyside, call Miller at 837-4093 or Pam Craig at 839-4430.
Local Girls Scouts selling cookies for American troops
A number of Sunnyside Girl Scout troops were out selling
cookies this past weekend at Sunnyside Wal-Mart store and plan to return to the
shopping center next weekend, according to Carolyn Knee, local scout leader.
She urges Sunnysiders to buy cookies for "…yourself or
for our troops overseas."
"We are encouraging our supporters to buy at least one
box of cookies for our servicemen and women who are stationed overseas,"
The Girl Scouts will be stationed at Wal-Mart from 3:30 to
7:30 p.m. Friday, April 2, and from 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 3.
The club members will complete their cookie sales on April 9
and 10, Knee said.
