Even though it is still summer, the YMCA Active Older Adult department is getting ready for its annual fall plant sale. Mums in 8-inch pots can be ordered for $9, and come in yellow, rust or purple. A fall aster plant in an 8-inch pot is also $9. A fall arrangement in a 12-inch pot is made up of ornamental kale, grasses and a flowering plant may be purchased for $16.
Forth Floral will furnish the plants for this fund raiser that provides support for older adults to participate in YMCA programs. Special older adult programs at the Y give seniors the opportunity to improve their strength and fitness and provide a place to socialize and meet new friends.
Plant orders and payment must be received by Aug. 21. Plant pick-up will be at the YMCA in Rhinelander Thursday, Sept. 12, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Order forms may be picked up at the Y or online at www.ymcaofthenorthwoods.org.
For more information or to place an order, call (715) 362-9622.
