2012 Memorial Day Flowers

June 2012

On Memorial Day, May 28, more than 50,000 roses and more than 1,000 bouquets were handed out at Arlington National Cemetery to help observe Memorial Day.  Selecta has participated in this event as a sponsor since 2011, and Pearls Blossom was used in red-white-blue bouquets. 

It is truly incredible how many people we have touched with flowers this weekend. I could not begin to count the number of people crying in my arms while they thanked me, and it all seems so reversed. A few simple stems meant so much to each of them,” said Kevin Clifford, a co-organizer of the event.
