Orders being taken for final Daffodil Days fundraiser
Orders are being taken until Feb. 21 for the American Cancer Society’s final Daffodil Days, an annual fundraising effort for 40 years.
“Daffodil Days was started 40 years ago because daffodils were the first flower to come up in the spring and were a great symbol of hope and strength,” said Charlene Lund, ACS events coordinator. “Daffodil Days in the Walworth County area has been very popular and brought many smiles to all who have participated. With that in mind, this is the last year for Daffodil Days, so we want to make this our very best event and ask that everyone buy a bunch of daffodils to make this the best project yet.”
This year’s items include fresh cut bunches of daffodils, the very popular ‘Gift of Hope’ bouquet (daffodils given anonymously to persons fighting cancer) and potted daffodils. The American Cancer Society is also offering a limited edition Boyd’s Bear with a bunch of daffodils. All prices remain the same as last year’s prices.
Persons interested in ordering daffodils or volunteering on the day the daffodils arrive should call Connie Frailing at 845-3132. Patti Niemiller takes orders in Selby and can be reached at 649-7730 or 649-7763. The daffodils will be available for pick up at Bridge City Bait on West Grand Crossing in Mobridge on March 11.
