Bulk orders for institutions, businesses, seniors' clubs, and churches were delivered by the Last Minute Mover and other volunteers to businesses and professional offices. If you know places which usually decorate for Christmas with poinsettias, perhaps you can encourage them to buy from the Auxiliary this year to support our current campaign.
This year, besides providing equipment for the hospital, your separate Poinsettia Santa gift will provide a poinsettia for Christmas to the staff of a department to thank them personally.
As you know, the plants are THE BEST in Victoria. Grown at Hilltop Greenhouses, a local business, the poinsettias, and planters are economical, strong, beautiful, long-lasting, and well wrapped. We will have an interesting selection. I feel confident offering this product to any company or institution as well as your friends and neighbours.
People can make purchases from this site or pick up an order form in the hospital shop in September. You will see reasonable prices. We'll have them ready for pick-up or delivery on Friday November 24th. This year's committee is Val Smith, Jeff Hayes, Mary Ann Fokkema, Doris Burow, Kay McQueen, Nancy Turley, and Cindy MacInnes. ORDERING DEADLINE IS mid-NOVEMBER.
