Ninth Annual Hugs and Buds for Veterans
Erlene Barber of Gates Florist provided a demonstration on Wednesday, November 9th to four RSVP volunteers on flower arranging.
Afterwards, RSVP Volunteers Beverly Bridges, Rosemary Jones, Sarah Carter, and Annette Calhoun made seventy flower arrangements for veterans throughout Montgomery County and Radford, especially those who are residing in local nursing and assisted living homes.
After that, RSVP Volunteers Rosemary Jones, Ronald “Chub” Flanary, Raymond Lyons, Jr., and Shirley Mullins delivered the arrangements on November 10th; just in time for Veterans Day!
RSVP would like to thank Montgomery County Supervisor Sherri Blevins for stopping by to recognize two of our veterans and the volunteers that made the arrangements! We would also like to recognize Gates Florist for their partnership and Virginia Flanary, Glenda Caldwell, and Dottie Williams for the handmade Veterans Day cards.
