Daffodils for Dinosaurs

The 30th annual Daffodils for Dinosaurs Sale will go on again this year but with a new twist in response to the current health situation we are confronting together.

“We want to give community members a way to participate in this fundraising by bringing joy to home-bound seniors and nursing home residents at this challenging time,” according to Lynne Vettraino, event coordinator. “It is important that we protect our volunteers and community members but this is the largest fundraiser for our organization. We hope our community is supportive of this effort to spread some happiness during this stressful time.”

Businesses and community members can order bunches of daffodils to be delivered to recipients of the Older Person’s Commission (OPC) Meals on Wheels program and local nursing homes until March 25 by ordering onlineFor every $5.00 donation, Dinosaur Hill will provide one bunch of daffodils to be delivered to a participant in the Meals On Wheels program or local nursing home. Daffodils will be delivered to seniors on March 26 and 27. The more donations, the more seniors can be reached.

At this important 30th anniversary of the Daffodils for Dinosaurs sale, Eugenia “Jean” Bajorek, volunteer and originator of the idea for the sale, reflects that: “My goal was to encourage the whole community to take part in a ‘fun’-draiser to support Dinosaur Hill Nature Preserve.  After thirty years, I’m so happy that Daffodils for Dinosaurs are still welcoming spring to our community!”

Dinosaur Hill, a nonprofit 501c3 organization, has been providing quality environmental education programming for school children, adults and families for more than 35 years. For information, email: daffodils@dinosaurhill.org.
