• Spring Flower Basket Sale

Kindness, Patience, Love, Enthusiasm,
and a Positive Attitude
Don’t wait to catch it from others – Be the Carrier!

Covid-19:  As a result of the coronavirus we have decided to cancel all of our meetings, and fundraiser gatherings through the month of April.  We are however, still accepting Spring Flower Basket orders through March. Put a bright spot in your day or someone else’s day and place an order for these beautiful flowers.
We will re-evaluate at the end of April for the month of May.   Please stay safe, follow the guidelines given to us for dealing with this virus.  Hopefully by working together we will make it through this.

Life will return to “normal” eventually.  It is unbelievable and difficult to put our arms around the HUGE effects that this virus has in every segment of our lives.  Thank goodness at times like this we have amazing hospice professionals!

We would like to reach out to our amazing friends at Community Home Health and Hospice, PeaceHealth Hospice and Kaiser Hospice to express our most sincere thank you and to send blessings from the community.  We can’t imagine the stress and hours of caring that you have on a daily basis, let alone during such a stressful time on a very personal basis as well.  You all have family and friends and a personal life, dealing with difficult situations has to be intense….

THANK YOU and BLESS YOU ALL, you are amazing!
As people of faith, keep that faith strong!
