At Bentley Florist in Burton MI
, they take the upcoming Good Neighbor Day (Sept. 7th) to heart. Steve Welch, owner of Bentley Florist, and his staff have teamed up withÂ Michigan Warriors hockey team players, staff members, and even the mascot to promote the spirit of neighborly love in their county.
â€œWe hope that the people of Genesee County will be able to get acquainted with new people or renew old friendships during Good Neighbor Dayâ€
, Welch said.Â â€œWe hope to create a friendlier, more caring and compassionate world starting right here in our communityâ€.
Bentley Florist will give away 3,500 roses
in dozen bundles absolutely free,
while supplies last, to anyone who visits the shop. There a catch though:
anyone who picks up the roses will be asked to sign a promise
to keep one rose for themselves and give the other 11 roses away to different people â€” in the spirit of neighborly friendship.
Michigan Warriors Head Coach Moe Mantha is excited to participate.Â â€œWe pride ourselves in our community involvement, and we are excited to participate in such a community friendly eventâ€.
Good Neighbor Day is being celebrated for the 17th year throughout the U.S. and Canada, as thousands of participating floral shops unite for a day of celebrating goodwill towards people. The Genesee County host of the event, Bentley Florist is celebrating their 58th anniversary of being a good neighbor.
