Free flowers brighten up Blue Monday

January has flown by and there is much on the agenda in Unity for February. Give yourself a high five for surviving the 10-day polar vortex. Thankfully 10 days of balmy temperatures followed. Here’s hoping the groundhog gives us some good news this weekend.
Hollyhock’s Greenhouse dealt with Blue Monday by giving out free flowers, while taking a silver collection earmarked for the mental wellness support group.
