Time for Annual Pre-Order Flower Sale
Weve consulted with Adam Davis of Marvins Gardens and believe we offer an outstanding array of hanging baskets and bags, big round bowls stuffed with impatiens, geraniums, specialty items, and bedding plants. Please help support the Markay while you beautify your landscape, patio, pool, and deck.
The ordering deadline is Friday, April 24. Pick up, at the elegant home of Scott and Kayla Massie, 125 Gay Street, Jackson, will be from Noon to 2 p.m. On Saturday, May 2. IF your order is $75 or more, we will gladly deliver to Jackson County homes. As you can see, the date is just a few days before Mothers Day and a hanging basket will surely light up the lives of all the women you love.
If you have questions, please call the Arts Council at 740-286-6355.
