Flowers for mom

Church group delivers

By Patricia A. Woodburry

On Friday and Saturday, before Mother's Day, members of Joy Lutheran Church volunteered their time to deliver flowers to the many mothers around the Southwest  area. Linda and Greg Smith, owners of Linda's Enchanted Florist in Dunnellon, made up the beautiful mother's day arrangements and the volunteers delivered them to the mothers for whom flowers were ordered.


The florist gave the Lutheran Men in Mission (LMM) payment for each of the 86 floral arrangements that they delivered. The group was able to raise more than $400 for their efforts which goes to the church for the outreach programs.

LMM has been delivering flowers for Mother's Day for the past eight years. For florists this is the most popular holiday for sending flowers, so Linda was pleased to have the help of the group. Some addresses can be hard to find, but this year most of the members had GPS in their cars which helped a lot. The nicest part of this event is the pleasure both members and flower recipients receive from delivering and accepting the flowers.
