Roses…Just Because

4-H members have the opportunity to sell Roses for Avera’s Roses…Just Because Fundraiser. If you are interested in selling Roses, please contact the Extension Office. You will get $5 per dozen for 4H!

‘Roses … Just Because’ proceeds will support Avera Majestic Bluffs Services: Hospice House and Eden Fund.

By purchasing a dozen long-stemmed roses for only $25, you can support hospice patients who cannot pay for a stay in the Hospice house.  The proceeds will also support Eden program activities that promote continuing contact for residents with plants, animals, and children.

Roses are on sale until March 14, 2016, and are only $25 for one dozen long-stemmed roses. To order or donate roses, go to www. AveraSacredHeart.org or call the Avera Sacred Heart Foundation at 605-668-8310.

You may pick up your roses Tuesday, April 12, from 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Benedictine Center Lobby (1000 W. 4th St., Yankton). Come early to choose from a wide variety of colors. Roses not picked up by 5 p.m. will be donated to Hospice Patients and Care Center Residents. For more information, please contact the Avera Sacred Heart Foundation at 668-8310.

4-H Roosters for Sale

We have a 4-H family that is selling two of their three roosters. The roosters were received last year in 2015 from Reynold Loecker as chicks. They have been handled and were even washed last year for the chicken project. If you are interested in one or both of these roosters, contact the Extension Office.
