Saturday, October 28th is Make a Difference Day, an annual celebration of volunteers and community service projects that involve getting out there and doing something that changes an individual, family, or group's life. In Columbus, that could involve working on building a home, helping out with chores that someone else cannot do themselves, volunteering somewhere, or just making an effort to do something special for someone else. If you aren't sure how to get involved, go online to the Make a Difference Day website and put in your local city or zip code to see what you can do on this special day in Columbus and the surrounding areas. No matter how big or small, everything counts and does make a difference. That even means sending flowers to those who are out there working tirelessly to change the world. Or, it could involve just sending flowers to someone you know is struggling or has been challenged recently. Here are some flower arrangement ideas to spread cheer and show appreciation: Fancy Free Grove City offers roses, alstroemeria, and carnations in various hues. Sunset in Galloway includes roses and lilies in bold fall colors.
