Cancer Society Daffodil Campaign underway

April is Daffodil Month for Canadian Cancer Society

April is Daffodil Month for Canadian Cancer Society, and the sales of fresh daffodils and daffodil pins generate funds for the organization.

The larger orders are geared for businesses, with fresh flowers available in lots of 500, in bundles of 10, which sell for $250. An order of 250 flowers in bunches of 10 go for $125, and singular bouquets of 10 flowers are $5 each. The pins are $2 apiece and a box of 100 is $200.

Local volunteer Heidi Meier is heading up the campaign in the South Cariboo, but time is running out to place orders.

Everything must be pre-ordered by March 15, and flowers and pins will arrive in April.

To place an order, drop by the 100 Mile House RCMP detachment office and drop off the order and payment, or call and leave a message for Meier at 250-395-6039 or 250-706-1476. She can also be e-mailed at

April 27 is Daffodil Day and Canadians everywhere will take a moment to reflect on the thousands who live with cancer, and remember those who have died.
