The plants will be displayed on Sunday, December 22nd and will be available in red or white at a cost of $15 per plant. The poinsettias may be purchased “In Memory of” or “In Honor of” individuals. When placing your order, you may also designate that the plant be given to a Sick and Shut-In member.
