It is freezing cold out, but in no time, we will be sweating as we walk laps at the 2018 Relay for Life South Windsor/ Vernon on June 8th-9th at Rockville High School, Vernon, CT.  We are starting the relay season off by welcoming back the Daffodil Days and there are several ways you can participate:

1.) Buy some daffodils for a co-worker, family member, friend or heck for yourself just to brighten up the gloomy days of winter:  For a $10 donation, receive one bunch of daffodils as a thank you; For a $15 donation, receive potted min-daffodils you can plant, as a thank you; For a $25 donation, instead of receiving flowers, you can support the Gift of Hope Program where volunteers deliver daffodils to local hospitals
2.) You can download the information from the link below and sell daffodils to co-workers, family and friends and all money will support the Spirit Walkers Relay for Life team of St. John’s in Vernon
Daffodils are for sale after church on Sundays from now until Feb 4th.  Please order by then at church or email me directly at and we will work out payment.  Delivery of daffodils will be the week of March 19th, 2018.  Thank you again for your continued support for this annual outreach.  If you have questions on how else you can support St. John’s effort with the Relay for Life just let me know!!
