Poinsettia sale to benefit local groups

The Westerville Sunrise Rotary once again is selling poinsettias to benefit a bevy of local charities.

Red, pink or white poinsettias can be purchased by contacting any Westerville Sunrise Rotarian, or by emailing wsrpoinsettias@gmail.com. Order forms and additional information are available on the Westerville Sunrise Rotary website at westervillerotary.org.

The deadline to purchase poinsettias is Wednesday, Nov. 28, with pick up on Dec. 5 or Dec. 8.

Last year's poinsettia sale raised $6,769 and helped to fund numerous local charities, including purchasing a trailer for the Westerville Area Resource Ministry, sending World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., through the Honor Flight Columbus program and sponsoring the Westerville high school Youth Exchange and Interact programs and the elementary school I CAN program.
