Firefighters and Flowers

Messenger photos by Dedra Cordle
Between May 6-8, hundreds of residents from across the city traveled to Prairie Township’s Fire Station 241 to peruse and/or purchase the dozens of varieties of plants on display for the department’s annual Mother’s Day Flower Sale. Among those who bought flowers for their loved ones was Tim Hannum, a captain at Station 241, shown here admiring the vibrant Calla Lilies in the bay. All of the proceeds of the Mother’s Day Flower Sale go directly to the firefighter’s association to help offset the cost of equipment purchases.
Lt. Jim Troesch examines the Whiskey Barrel Geraniums located outside of the bay. The firefighter’s association receives all of their flowers from Home Depot. Troesch joked the firefighters can be trusted to fry fish during their annual fundraising event held in late June, but not so much raising flowers and keeping them alive.
