STAR JOURNAL REPORT
Even though it is still summer, fall is in the air and the Y Active Older Adult department is getting ready for its annual fall plant sale.
Mums in 8” pots can be ordered for $10 and come in yellow, rust or purple. Fall aster plants in 8” pots are also $10. How about a a fall arrangement in a 12” pot made up of ornamental kale, grasses and flowering plants for $18?
“We have been doing this fundraiser for five years and the plants have been beautiful,” says Marilyn Duschl. “I set mine outside on my deck and they lasted until Thanksgiving.”
Forth Floral will be providing the plants for this fundraiser that supports older adults who want to remain active and healthy. 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 regardless of income.
Plant orders and payment must be received by August 25. Plant pick up will be at the Y on Thursday, Sept. 8 from 9 a.m. -5 p.m. Order forms can be picked up at the Y or online at www.ymcaofthenorthwoods.org.
