Oconto Falls Lions will be having their annual rose sale in March

Bringing a little warmth to the end of winter, again this year the Oconto Falls Lions will be having their annual rose sale in March.  The Lions are involved in a number of community service projects and proceeds from the sale will help support those projects, but the real point of the sale is to brighten the day for the lucky recipients of the roses.

Rose sale chair Jim Patenaude goes out of his way to ensure the roses are up to the Lions high quality standards.  Each year there have been a number of last minute walk in orders, but in order to ensure that there are no disappointments, advance orders will keep that from happening.

Check out the Rose Poster  and  Rose Order Form for more information.
