ROTARY is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world. The service projects of Juneau-Gastineau Rotary include hosting exchange students; re-modeling the Zach Gordon Youth Center; maintaining the Jensen Arboretum; contributing to the purchase of new playground equipment at Riverbend Elementary; supporting middle school after school programs; building ramps for seniors and those with disabilities; sponsoring Family Day at the Lake; constructing Little League dugouts; providing holiday presents, caroling and a Christmas tree at the Pioneers' Home and conducting highway cleanup.
And, if you're not a gardener you can purchase bulbs to donate to those places that could be enhanced with flowers, but don't have a budget for it. Think about schools, day care centers, the Egan median (maintained by the city), and/or a location of your choice. Plus, we have Power Planters who can do the job for you. (See info at bottom of order form.) What a lovely gift for a senior who would appreciate a burst of color, but can do the work themselves.
In order to fund some of these activities, the Juneau-Gastineau Rotary Club invites friends and neighbors throughout Juneau to purchase some of the beautiful bulbs. Bulbs are hand selected by a team of Rotarian's, including a few Master Gardeners, who are experienced and know what works well in our Juneau climate. Not only are they a beautiful addition to any garden or yard, but the proceeds go towards funding projects right here in Juneau.
Orders will be filled according to the payment date, so order before your favorites are gone! Free Bulb Booster with each purchase. Substitutions may need to be made due to crop availability. Order online before 9/28/2015 or from a Rotarian directly before 10/1/2015.The public can purchase bulbs at our Garage Sale at the AEL&P warehouse on "pick up" day, October 3, from 10-2.
