“Friends” of North County Recreation District (NCRD) will once again be selling flowers for the summer. Locations will range from the Friday Market in Manzanita on most Friday’s and the parking lot of The Little Apple in downtown Manzanita on Laneda on Saturday mornings. If you want some fresh flowers this summer for a special occasion, you may also special order by calling Patty at 503-368-6082 or 503-801-3534.

Flowers from different local yards will be presented in beautiful bouquets with vases. Without CART’M around, getting vases has been difficult for Friends of NCRD. They are asking people to return their clean vases to them or leave them at The Little Apple. Clean vases are always appreciated.

The Friday Market opens at 5 p.m. and closes at 8 p.m. No sales are allowed before the market opens. On Saturday mornings, Friends of NCRD will be selling from 9 a.m. to noon.

Proceeds from these sales go to scholarship programs at NCRD, with some of the money going towards the pool fund. Friends of NCRD’s job is to make sure all in the community have access to programs at NCRD by providing these scholarships.
