Funderaiser Sales are still behind

Posted on Apr 11 2021 - 9:12pm
Hi Everyone - I just looked at previous years fundraising compared to this year.  As two weeks prior to the flower sale, we've only sold about 60% of what we sold in 2019.  That's a difference of about 900 bags between our last sale and this year.
