Morris Lions are planning this year’s Rose Sale for Mother’s Day. In this photo, Morris Lions Joanne Johnson, Doug Linn, Irene Leopold and Doug Read prepare roses for delivery on Saturday, May 12. Roses may be ordered from any Morris Lion or by calling (815) 942-6634.

The Morris Lions Club is again selling tickets to reserve a dozen lovely roses for delivery to local homes in its 29th annual Rose Sale.

On the Saturday before Mother’s Day, the Morris Lions Club will deliver one dozen long-stem roses to those who have purchased tickets for $16.

This fundraiser provides an excellent gift for Mom’s Day; a special treat for a spouse, parent, good friend, or sweetheart; or simply provides a springtime splurge with lots of color for a nominal cost.

Nearly 400 dozen roses will be delivered from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 11, with some deliveries available on Friday afternoon, May 10.

Anyone wishing to take advantage of this wonderful offer can call any Morris Lions Club member or (815) 942-6634 to place an order for roses before Saturday. May 4. The proceeds are used to help the vision impaired and other community projects.
