Wood Flower Fundraiser Update

We've added more "Wood Flowers" on the Bridge.  So many special thoughts of loved ones, children, grandkids, mothers, fathers, families and peace.

 

 
 

 

It makes the bridge not only more beautiful but radiates the goodness in our community.   

      

 

 

Our goal is to make a minimum of 200 "Wood Flowers".  With your support we can continue to sustain our charities, like Sight and Hearing screenings, Share, Anne Marie House, Bridges, Meals on Wheels, Lions Sight and Hearing, Northeast Deaf & Hard of Hearing, Future In Sight and Dog Sight.  They need us more than ever due to Covid19.  We now have online ordering and  payments.  Click here to place your order Order Online.  If you would rather order by mail click here Order by Mail  .

Wood Flowers on the Bridge of Flowers

Wood Flowers are popping up on the bridge!  Your flower, remembering a loved one, honoring someone or just for you could be the next ones placed in the flowerpots on the bridge. These wooden flowers are handmade and painted by Amherst Lions.  Even though we can’t serve you pancakes, we’re continuing to serve the community by supporting our local charities. We miss gathering with you at our events.  Please take time to support us by purchasing a Wood Flower Plantstake for only $10 each.  Simply download the order form, Wood Flower Order Form, and mail.  Stay safe out there!

Wood Flower Fundraiser 2020 Details

What could be better than our pancakes?  A wood flower plant stake beautifying the Bridge of Flowers! Our normal fund-raising events (Pancake Breakfast, Red Sox Tickets, Concerts on the Green) has been cancelled this year due to Covid19. However, the charities, to whom we usually donate, still need our funding.  So, we are redirecting our efforts to continue that support through online fundraisers.  We need your help. Our first new fundraiser we will be offering painted wood flower plant stakes.  You’ll have the choice of shape, color and limited engraving on it.  The cost will be $10 each and can be in someone’s memory, in honor of someone who is a Covid19 frontline worker or just for yourself.  Once completed they’ll be placed on the Bridge of Flowers (Corner of Rt. 122 and Boston Post Road) or in flower beds around the bridge.   At the end of the season, Oct. 1, we will arrange to get the plant stakes back to you.  Click here to download the order form:  Wood Flower Order Form.  Simply fill it out and mail with payment to the Amherst Lions Club’s address on the form. Once we receive it, we will make your flower plant stake.  Weekly we will add them to the bridge flower pots and email a receipt and picture of it to you.  Please share this with your friends and family and help us show the love of our community.         


                


The Bridge of Flowers Theme 2020

Soon the flower boxes on The Bridge of Flowers (corner of Rt. 122 and Boston Post Rd, Amherst, NH) overflow with the colors of the rainbow!  Each box contains a single color to reflect the elements of a rainbow -- a long-time symbol of life, hope and promise. The Lions chose that theme because of today's uncertainties created by the pandemic. Two new ground gardens were planted with the early Spring flowers to naturalize the area.  The club started the project last year and, with some guidance from the Amherst Garden Club, we're planning to make improvements each year.  Grateful thanks to House by the Side of the RoadSunny Valley Farms and Home Depot for their plant donations. Visit them for your own garden ideas while watching The Bridge of Flowers gardens grow!  And be on the lookout for our upcoming Wood Flower Fundraiser--all proceeds go to charities.
