Women’s Resources of Monroe County is “Painting the Town Red”


Delaware Water Gap, PA – Women’s Resources of Monroe County’s 17th Annual Geranium Sale will run from March 29th through April 27th, 2011. Our 4” robust, potted geraniums in bud and bloom will arrive on May 6.

Geraniums are known for their hardiness and ability to produce flowers of striking beauty even in harsh weather and adversity. The color red symbolizes the unfortunate bloodshed of our friends, colleagues, and family members that have fallen victim to the hands of people they loved.  “Geraniums are a symbol of survival. As our supporters tend their flowers and watch them bloom, we hope that they are reminded of the survivors that this Geranium Sale supports,” explained Janette Peri, Development Assistant at Women’s Resources of Monroe County.

The hardy geraniums arrive May 6, the Friday before Mother’s Day and make a wonderful gift for a mom, teacher appreciation, nursing home residents or your own garden.

Pick will be on May 6th at four different locations in Monroe County from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.:

  • The Stroudsburg American Legion in Stroudsburg
  • The First National Bank of Palmerton in Gilbert
  • The Tobyhanna Municipal Building in Mount Pocono
  • The Women’s Resources Administrative Offices in Delaware Water Gap

* Community volunteers will deliver of 50 plants or more *

“We are looking forward to another successful year and appreciate all your support in helping Women’s Resources of Monroe County achieve their mission,” said Kathie Weichel Volunteer Board Member of Women’s Resources and Co-Chair of the Volunteer Geranium Committee.
