Westlake Kiwanis to hold holiday poinsettia sale
The Kiwanis Club of Westlake will be selling locally grown poinsettia plants just in time for the holiday season. The 6.5-inch potted plants make a beautiful home decoration or gifts for friends, neighbors or co-workers. They brighten the holidays and last long after the tree is down and the decorations are put away.
The cost is $10 per plant and funds help support the community projects of the club like holiday meals for the needy, scholarships for Lakeshore Day Camp, West Shore YMCA's Learn to Swim Program, Meals on Wheels, Special Olympics, Key Club, Builders Club, and the Memorial Day Parade, to name a few.
The plants come in red, white, pink and marble. They must be ordered by Dec. 1 and must be picked up on Saturday, Dec. 12, at Westlake High School between 8 a.m. and noon. Order forms are available from Kiwanis members, Key Club Members, and Builders Club members, at Cricket Equipment, and Westlake Porter Public Library. Forms and checks made out to Kiwanis-Westlake Youth Foundation can be mailed to Westlake Kiwanis, 483 Oakmoor Ave., Bay Village, OH 44140.
Please consider brightening someone’s holiday season and supporting this worthwhile organization. Order your poinsettia today! For questions or more information, call 216-832-1640.
