Some crocuses still left

For those who still don’t have their Canadian Institute for the Blind crocuses yet, the plants are still available at the Fort Frances Volunteer Bureau while supplies last.
“We do have some left. They’ve been selling well, but we’d like to sell them all,” said Karen Haney, assistant co-ordinator for the Volunteer Bureau.
Some 500 pots—each containing five-six bulbs—were delivered here last Tuesday. While most of them were pre-ordered, some were set aside for walk-in purchases.
The cost is $4 per pot or three for $10, and people can pay by cash or a cheque made out to the CNIB. The Volunteer Bureau (located in the old CN station) is open weekdays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Flower pots, hand-painted by the visually-impaired, also are still available at the Volunteer Bureau for the duration of the crocus sale. These cost $10 each.
Money raised from the local campaign goes to help the 1,500 visually-impaired people in the region. There are 49,500 CNIB clients in Ontario.
