Morris Lions Club member Al Miller holds roses like the ones he and other club members can deliver to your favorite lady for Mother’s Day on May 12. Roses may be ordered by calling (815) 942-6634.

The Morris Lions Club is again selling tickets to reserve a dozen roses for delivery to local homes in its 27th annual rose sale.

On the Saturday before Mother’s Day (May 12), the Morris Lions will deliver one dozen long-stem roses to those who have purchased tickets for $16. This fundraiser provides a gift for Mother’s Day, a special treat for a spouse, parent, good friend, or sweetheart, or simply gives you a springtime splurge with lots of color for a nominal cost.

Nearly 400 dozen roses will be delivered from 8 a.m. until noon on Saturday, May 12, with some deliveries available on Friday afternoon, May 11.

Anyone wishing to take advantage of this offer can call any Morris Lions Club member or (815) 942-6634 to place an order for roses before Saturday. May 5. Proceeds are used to help the vision impaired and other community projects.
