Community Flowers


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

All around the community people are making platic flowers by the hundreds each day. Why?

It's because the Sun Advocate is sponsoring a project to make sure no grave in the county's cemeteries is without at least one flower this Memorial Day. The project is moving ahead at full speed due to the help of schools, service groups, religious organizations and individuals.

Over 4,000 individually- made flowers have come into the newpaper's office already and materials for 9,000 more are out in the field, some being made this very moment.

The project called "No Grave Unadorned" includes not only making the flowers but finding volunteers to help place them on grave in cemeteries across the county the week before Memorial Day.

To keep track of the numbers of flowers made and brought in, each issue of the Sun Advocate has a Flower Vine printed in the far right column of the front page showing how many flowers have come in. It is estimated that 20,000 flowers will be needed to place one on every previously undecorated grave.

Anyone wishing to donate their time to make flowers or to place them on graves the week of May 22-31 can contact Shayla Winder at 637-0732.
