Shout out to Owatonna Eagle Scout Charlie Tucker for doing this project at a local retirement home.

For $10, which includes delivery, they will make an arrangement and drop it off at the assisted living homes in the area, to boost residents' spirits during our winter months and the restrictions due to COVID. How great of an idea right?

Does anyone know of a local florist willing to deliver in our area for a deal like this? Let me know and we can let people know.
