We will have at least 10 – 12 yards for 2009 and will be drawing name May 7th.
Also on May 7th we will be have a “smile and dial” campaign, to seek out donations from the community. Many who contributed last year are giving this year as well!
It is time to either get you application in for your yard to be submitted for the random drawing or phone/mail in your donation!
The new sponsor list will be published for 2009 after May 7th on the F.L.O.W. website.
Spring is in the air in Michigan, so get with FLOW and help make our neighborhoods bloom!

We are celebrating our first years success on September 27th! It has been a very busy this year getting this project up and running..........but we did it and we are proud!
Our local Chapter made the on line news paper, and we have claims from other media that they will cover as well...............so I share with you the 1st of many (I hope)!
There is a post of mine currently featured on active rain that refers to the Habitat home that our local chapter participated in............. this was funded through this foundation and labor came from WCR members.
Our local chapter is making a difference in our committy..................I am very proud to be be a member of WCR and connected with such wonderful woman!
