Rotary Roses in Bloom
500 dozen roses filled the shelves of Springfield Floral on Monday. That’s a total of 6,000 roses that the Springfield Rotary Club sold for its annual Rotary Rose Sale for the twenty-sixth consecutive year.
This is one of their main fundraisers for the year. With 500 dozen bouquets sold, it shows the community’s support for both the club and fundraiser.
The Springfield Rotary Club is very active and supports many local projects. Proceeds from this fundraiser will help them continue to stand behind their motto, “Service Above Self.”
Over the years, the Springfield Rotary Club supported the following local projects: Brown County United Way, FFA Greenhouse, Sticker Field project, Accelerated Reader program at local schools, Meals on Wheels, St. John’s Circle of Care birthday party, Springfield Area Historical Society, St. Johns Church clothing drive, Regional Boy Scouts, Post Prom, Springfield Community Theatre, Tiger Football Camp, student scholarships, Arion Award to outstanding music student, Riverside Days Parade and Riverside Days carnival.
