Floral Professionals Come Together to Help Honor the Granite Mountain Hotshots

I’m sure you have heard on the news about the 19 wildfire specialists that came to aid in Yarnell’s fierce fire were tragically killed.  On Tuesday, July 9th, a memorial service for the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots took place.

You may not have heard, however,  about the team of floral designers, wholesalers, and many other companies who volunteered time, resources, and fresh flowers to create floral tributes used for the memorial service.  We worked with Arizona area florists such as Allan’s Flowers, Prescott Valley Florist, and Tulip Tree Florist, to supply product from over 10 of our own suppliers who also wanted to get involved to honor these fallen heroes.

It is great to see another example of how our industry can work together at a time of need to help provide some level of consolation that we all know flowers bring to solemn events.  Thank you to everyone that was involved and for the privilege of allowing Mayesh to participate.

 

 

If you would like to see more pictures to truly appreciate the efforts, be sure to visit Allan’s Flowers Facebook page.

Sign Up to Participate – Memorial Day Roses

Memorial Day Flowers

 

We are very excited to participate in this year’s Memorial Day Flowers!!  Read on to get all of the details and to register:


MEMORIAL DAY FLOWERS “FLORISTS & COMMUNITY”
A Rose for the Headstone, Another Rose to Take Home in Memory

Memorial Day 2012: 50,000 roses were donated by farms and distributed by florists at 95 cemeteries or ceremonies in twenty-six states.

2013 Goal: The Memorial Day Flowers ”Florists & Community” program has expanded and will be offered to two hundred florists nationally.

Participating florists will receive 400 roses, a Memorial Day Flowers banner, and 200 informational handouts. There is a space on the back of the handouts to place your shop’s information. One (1) box per company please.

Your 400 roses are donated by South American and U.S. rose growers. For the first 40 Mayesh Wholesale Florist customers there is no charge as Mayesh will pick up the freight and handling cost.

 

There are several ways to use the roses you will receive within your communities:

 

  • Contact your local cemetery and set up a table to distribute roses to visitors. Each visitor will be given two stems of roses: one to place on a headstone and one to take home in remembrance of a friend or relative. Optionally, you could provide a service for families that are unable to visit by sending a digital picture of the rose lying on the headstone.

    This is a local news video link from one of the participating florists in Auburn, Massachusetts:http://www.necn.com/searchNECN/search/v/57060995/in-auburn-mass-they-remember-with-roses.htm?q=florist

  • Distribute roses at your local Memorial Day parade or ceremony.
  • Place a sign at your shop offering a free Memorial Day Rose to anyone who comes in on the preceding Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

 

Participating in the Memorial Day Flowers “Florists & Community” program is an excellent way to connect with your community and honor those who served. A single rose, placed on a headstone, is a floral expression of appreciation.

The cornerstone of the 2012 events was Arlington National Cemetery. 60,000 Ecuadorian roses and 2,000 Californian bouquets were handed out by 120 volunteers.www.youtube.com/memorialdayflowers

Charity Flowers: FCADV’s Door To Hope Event

We had the pleasure of working with the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence Foundation, Inc. by contributing flowers for their event, “Door to Hope”.

“Proceeds from the Door To Hope Dinner will help to ensure that life saving and life changing shelter, services and programs are available to domestic violence victims and their children as they rebuild their lives and live free from violence . . .”

I know many of us start considering different charities to donate to for the holiday season – if you would like to learn more about contributing to this wonderful organization, click here.

 

Habitat for Humanity

 

Our CEO, Patrick Dahlson, is always on the go.  Most recently, he went on a journey with his church’s youth group, and daughter, Desiree.  Their destination was Tutwiler, Mississippi, one of the poorest counties in the U.S., with the goal of helping to build a house for Habitat for Humanity.  Patrick and Desiree sent me some pictures to share with you.

With so many in need throughout our country, it is heart warming to see these pictures.  Share with us in the comments below in ways that you give back?
