Daffodil Days returning to Montgomery Co.
By SARA DEMARCE
Daffodil Days Chair
Spring is on its way – and so are the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days. Montgomery County residents have until Feb. 15 to place your orders for daffodils.
“With Daffodil Days, the hope goes beyond the symbol of the flowers – you know that with every bouquet you order, you’re making an actual difference in the lives of real people fighting cancer,” according to Sara DeMarce, Montgomery County Daffodil Days chair.
Ordering daffodils for friends, customers and employees can brighten their days, desks or dinner tables.
Proceeds help the American Cancer Society offer free programs and services that save lives.
These programs and services are helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early, helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis, finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery, and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight.
Make a minimum $10 donation to the American Cancer Society to receive a bunch of 10 daffodils. The dainty Daffodil plant, which you can later plant outside, is available for a donation of $15.
This year features Shar N. Hope, a special Boyds™ Bear designed exclusively for the American Cancer Society’s Daffodil Days Bear and a Bunch and can be ordered for a donation of $25.
You may place your order with any of our volunteers: in Red Oak, contact Wanda Johnson, Karon Stanley, David Jennings, Kim Ellis, Les Anderson, Pam Gilmore, Christy Fine, Chris Johnson, or Sara DeMarce; in Stanton Georgia Clark; and in Villisca Louise Sunderman.
