Flower Power is approaching March 4-5.   On Sunday

traverse the convention floor pulling plants and
flowers from displays and putting
them in boxes.  The boxes are loaded in semis and
transported to a central area.  Early Monday March 5,
the proper number of boxes will be picked up and
taken to nursing homes.   Shalom Park has been one for
the last few years.
A second facility will be added this year.
On Sunday after the flowers are pulled the volunteers
go to a downtown restaurant for dinner.
