OXFORD – Audrey Johnson, the Head Coordinator for Chenango County Habitat for Humanity, is gearing up for their 14th annual Red Carnation Sale. The sale raises funds to support Chenango County Habitat for Humanity’s current project, a house being built on Adams Street in Norwich, and future projects. Orders for carnations will be taken from Jan. 7-21, by calling Johnson at 843-6249 or Joyce Ardron at 843-9747.
Red carnation prices have not increased over the years – they’re still $1.50/single; $7/half dozen; and $12/dozen. Last year Habitat’s 300+ volunteers sold over 15,000 flowers, raising $9,000 in 2006, and this year they hope to increase that number. Distributions and pick-ups will be on Saturday, Feb. 10 and Monday, Feb. 12 – just in time for Valentine’s Day bouquets for sweethearts.
