Location update: Firefighters selling ‘Flowers for a Cure’
Update: Due to high winds and rain the booth location for the Templeton Firefighters with Flowers for a Cure event has been changed. On Valentine’s Day, the flower booth will be located at two locations. The Templeton Fire Station at 206 5th Street (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and BarrelHouse Brewing Company (noon to 6 p.m.).
–Templeton Fire Department Firefighters will sell flowers for Valentine’s Day to raise money to find a cure for leukemia and lymphoma. From Saturday, Feb. 9, through 6 p.m. on Valentine’s Day – Thursday, Feb. 14 – Firefighters with Flowers for a Cure will have a booth in downtown Templeton selling a variety of flowers, including roses.
From February 9 – 13, flowers sales will take place at the Templeton Fire Station, located 206 5th Street, across from Templeton Park from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. On Valentine’s Day, the flower booth will be located at the Legion Hall at 805 South Main St (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and BarrelHouse Brewing Company (noon to 6 p.m.). Last year, all the flowers were sold by 4 p.m. on Valentine’s Day, so make sure to stop by early. BarrelHouse Brewing Company will also donate a $1 to the Stairclimb Team for every purchase of a pint of Templeton Ale on 2/14.
“Come down to the fire station and buy roses or bouquets for your spouse, your parents, your friends or yourself,” said Brandon Wall, Fire Captain with Templeton Fire and Emergency Services and the Team Templeton Stairclimb Captain. “Everyone loves to get flowers, especially at Valentine’s Day. And you’ll also be helping people who are in the fight of their lives against cancer. Leukemia and lymphoma, as well as other types of cancer, have impacted every family in some way. Flowers bring hope and show love, so it makes sense to raise money for cancer patients by selling flowers, said Wall.”
This is the third year that the Templeton firefighters have sold flowers to raise money to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Firefighter Stairclimb held on March 10 in Seattle, WA. The stairclimb attracts firefighters from around the world who pledge donations and walk up 69 flights of stairs in full fire-protective equipment to honor loved ones, friends and strangers with leukemia, lymphoma and other cancers. The flower sales will benefit the donation of the Templeton Stairclimb team, which includes Engineer Phillip Goldbloom, Firefighter Haustin Morrison, Chief Bill White and Captain Brandon Wall. The individual firefighters are also raising money.
Flowers for sale will include roses of various colors, carnations and mixed spring bouquets. Prices range from $25 to $65. Custom arrangements are available for a higher price. Vases will be available. Students will get $5 off their purchase with a valid student ID card.
