Friendship Day is Wednesday, Sept 23rd

The Greater Greencastle Chamber of Commerce’s 20th Friendship Day is Wednesday, September 23, and each year, Eitel’s Flower and Gift Shop helps celebrate the occasion with roses given out to individuals who bring a non-perishable food item or 2 for the local Food Pantry. The purpose of this event is to offer our citizens the opportunity to get to know each other better, renew friendships and strengthen community ties by giving each person a dozen free roses, with one stipulation, that they keep only one rose for themselves and give the other eleven roses away to eleven different people in a simple gesture of kindness and goodwill. The community is invited to stop by any of the following participating locations: Eitel’s Flower and Gift Shop, Putnam Inn, The Game Warehouse, POET Biorefining, Duke Energy, Ivy Tech Community College, Mill Pond Health Campus, Asbury Towers Retirement Community, First National Bank, Bittles and Hurt and Hopkins Rector Funeral Homes and the Chamber office. The Rose giveaway begins at 8 am, they go quickly, so be sure to get there early so you can get your roses to distribute.
