Growing Smiles Fundraiser update

We’ve received word that the Growing Smiles Fundraiser has been so popular that the greenhouse is close to selling out of some items. If you have ordered and paid then please don’t worry you will receive your orders. However, once the greenhouse has run out of items they will make them unavailable for purchase so if you’ve been waiting to purchase you might like to hurry and get your orders in soon to avoid disappointment. Order deadline is April 30th. https://lacdesbois.growingsmilesfundraising.com/home

April showers bring May flowers…

If you remember our Christmas growing smiles campaign and all of the beautiful greenery arrangements parents received, you will be thrilled to know that we have partnered with Growing Smiles again (a BC company) to provide you with baskets and bedding plants. Plants are a great way to encourage our friends to get out into the garden while supporting a healthy fundraising event. Please check our website at Growing Smiles Fundraising for more information regarding this fundraiser! Ordering deadline is April 30!
