    Thank you all for viewing my post. Last year the FCGBA was able to award two $500 scholarships.

    Fred, they are beautiful. I just wish I was not allergic to them. I can never have a real tree or go to a house with one. I break out so bad and then oh I can not breath. That makes it a little hard.

    What a great idea thou.

    They are BEAUTIFUL!!! I will have to give this some serious thought! I might have to get one or two :wink: I do have a couple of questions though...

    I saw on the website where it said that the $35 includes tax AND shipping... is that right? (if so, that is a REALLY good price!!!) If you purchase a wreath, when is the round about time it is supposed to arrive at your home?

    Thanks! And I think the wreaths are a GREAT idea! :wink:

    OK Brandi, I hope I can answer your questions correctly! Our FCGBA Treasurer Gwen VanderMartin (my dear, darling wife!) says that she can recieve your orders by October 20th at the latest. She has to retype every order before she turns it in on November 1st. She said that folks who live in cooler climes can expect their wreaths in the 3rd or 4th week of November. In warmer places like Texas or California or the Southwest they can expect to recieve them by the first week in December. The lady at the company said they dry out too quick in warmer climates. Yes, the price does include taxes and shipping and they will be shipped to the adress specified.

    Thanks for your interest in our fund raiser! :hi5:

    Gwens Phone # is 903-388-0655 if you have any more questions. This way you can speak to the smart woman running the show instead of the dumb man doing all of the grunt work! :doh:

    Thank you all for viewing my post for our fund raiser. I picked up our first 3 orders for 8 wreaths on Thursday. Gwen will have to get busy and start typing it up! I think she was just relieved to have something to do with this project. If anyone has any other suggestions for fund raising please let me know. Thanks! :wave:

    Katrina, Gwen will check on Monday and get a definite answer for you. The shipping is included in the price for the lower 48, but she isn't sure about the Great State of Alaska!
