Do you have roses or other blooms to share? From West End Neighbor, Andre’ Siedentopf: We are building a float for the Rose Parade in a garage on Madison St. It’s a small float with a 1.5″ scale train (Engine and Caboose) on it for the train club we belong too. Check out website: http://redwoodempirels.org/ We are in need of some flowers for it and would prefer to use fresh cut instead of fake or silk. We don’t need a ton of flowers but it would be nice to have a variety especially roses. I know there a lot of folks in the neighborhood with lots of blooming or about to bloom flowers as you last article states. Could you put the word out and let’s see if anyones willing to donate some of their flowers to us? They can call me or email me either way. My phone number is 972-3733 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org We would need the flowers Friday (May 20th) night before the parade, the parade is Saturday May 21st. Here’s some pictures of the float up to this point: LINK
We’ll be working on the float this Saturday and Sunday afternoon if you want to pop over and take a look. Thanks so much if you can do this!!
