The calendar says it is Spring, and the Annual Ione “Grandma” Collins Memorial Flower Sale is back! Time to get ready to brighten your yards this summer.
Did you know that 2023 is the 100th anniversary of the YMCA in the 19th Ward, and 25 years since moving to our current location on Thurston Road? The name has changed over the years, but the mission of the YMCA remains the same. And no matter where we are, or what we are called, this neighborhood has supported the Annual Flower Sale for more than three decades! Proceeds from this flower sale benefit the Y’s Annual Campaign, which supports youth programs, camp attendance, adult fitness and active older adult programming. If you haven’t visited us on Thurston Road in a while, please stop by and see the changes, pick up a schedule, see the new equipment and say hi!
Orders can be mailed or dropped off at The Thurston Road YMCA Neighborhood Center at 597 Thurston Road. Payment is due with the order form; checks can be made payable to YMCA Flower Sale. Orders are due by Wednesday, April 26.
