June Persia, an employee at the Save-A-Lot in Holley, waters bouquets of flowers for Hospice of Orleans. The agency had 60 volunteers selling flowers at 35 locations this past week.

Last year the fundraiser raised more than $8,000 to support Hospice services for residents of Orleans County.

Lynn Burgess, owner of Lynn’s Salon on West Park Street in Albion, is one of the new businesses selling flowers for Hospice. George’s Fancher Road Service in Albion also agreed to help sell the flowers for the first time.

At Sam’s Diner in Holley, Joe Andreano of Holley, 95, bought a Spring Bouquet for his wife. “I’ve got a good wife,” he said with a smile.
