Thank you to all who have dropped off flower vases and baskets for our latest recycling efforts. We buy flowers from several sources for the church. One of our suppliers is Ashland Addison Florist which has a number of shops in the Chicago area including one in the shopping center at Arlington Heights Road and Higgins (847-439-5111). They will be taking the vases and baskets off of our hands and providing us a rebate periodically. So please do continue to drop off your vases and baskets at the parish office—all we ask is that the vases not be chipped or cracked, and that you rinse them off before dropping them off.
Ashland Addison also has an affinity program which provides us a rebate when you purchase flowers through them and mention St. Raymond or provide them with our code number which is SRCD. Now we ask that you please continue supporting our local floral shops, but if you do happen to use Ashland Addison for your floral needs, please remember to mention that you are a St. Raymond Parishioner.
If you have any questions about our recycling efforts, or if you have any other suggestions for helping us be good stewards in our recycling efforts, please contact Roberta in the parish office (firstname.lastname@example.org, or 847-253-8600).
