Thanks for another banner year of kids club events; we’ll have more in 2019!

It seems like just the other day we were kicking off the 2018 Royer’s Kids Club schedule with a Valentine’s Day-themed event. We’re not sure where the time went, but we had a lot of fun with everyone who attended one or more of our five kids events throughout the year.

The photos above are from our final event, held Nov. 10 in each of our stores and featuring a Veterans Day theme.

Thank you to everyone, children and parents alike, for participating this year. We love having you in our stores and sharing our knowledge and passion for everything related to flowers.

We wish everyone a safe, happy holiday season. Meanwhile, we are putting the finishing touches on plans for another great kids club schedule in the year ahead. We can’t wait to tell you all about it!

10 area high schools benefit from Royer’s homecoming fundraiser

Royer's homecoming

Homecoming was an easy win for 10 area high schools that participated in Royer’s fundraiser.

By signing up, the schools’ homecoming committees earned a 10 percent commission on their portions of online corsage and boutonniere sales that totaled $4,538.52. 

The participating high schools: Cedar Cliff, Cedar Crest, Central Dauphin, Central York, Christian School of York, Ephrata, Hershey, Manheim Township, Northern, Warwick.

The schools may use the reimbursed funds at their discretion.

Royer’s plans to offer similar fundraisers next year for homecoming and prom, again open to all high schools in Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon or York counties.

Royer’s collecting cards and coloring pages Nov. 11-Dec. 4 for Red Cross’ ‘Holidays for Heroes’

Royer's Holidays for Heroes

Royer’s Flowers will collect cards and coloring pages for active military and veterans in each of its stores Nov. 11-Dec. 4 as part of the American Red Cross’ “Holidays for Heroes” program.

Collected cards and coloring pages will be handed over to the Red Cross, whose volunteers will organize them for delivery. Destinations include military installations, VFWs, American Legions, the Lebanon VA and retirement homes in 22 counties in central Pennsylvania.

Cards may be dropped off at any Royer’s during normal business hours. Coloring pages are available at the stores or can be downloaded here:

Christmas Tree

Santa

Ornament

Reindeer

Dreidel

The Red Cross offers these guidelines for preparing cards:

  • Use generic salutations such as “Dear Service Member” as cards addressed to specific individuals cannot be delivered through this program.
  • Include messages of support and thanks.
  • Sign your name to them.
  • Don’t include letters or other personal information (photos, addresses).
  • Refrain from choosing cards with glitter.

The American Red Cross (redcross.org/centralpa) prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. Last year in central Pennsylvania, the Red Cross assisted more than 2,100 people affected by nearly 750 local disasters.
