Thank You!

Over 110 children in Fremont were guaranteed to make their moms very happy on Mother's Day thanks to beautiful flower arrangements they were able to make on Saturday, at Fremont Flowers and Gifts in Centerville. For the past seven years, Fremont Flowers and Gifts owner, Dirk Lorenz, has sponsored Kids' Day on the Saturday before Mother's Day.

Fremont Flowers provides the flowers, greenery, baskets, and all other supplies necessary for children ages 5-12 to make Mother's Day arrangements for their mothers and grandmothers. The $12 donation asked for each arrangement benefits the Fremont Education Foundation (FEF), which sponsors after-school band, sports scholarships and innovative education grants in Fremont schools. Volunteers from FEF provide basic instruction on how to arrange the flowers, and then enjoy watching budding florists at work. This year, the Fremont Education Foundation received $1360 from this event - making it a Happy Mother's Day for them as well!
