The K of C also annually donates to the city Fourth of July fireworks display, which is typically put on by the Martins Ferry Chamber of Commerce. They also donate money to the Coats for Kids program at Christmastime.
Gdula said the K of C ordered about 270 pots of perennial flowers including tulips, lilies, hyacinths and daffodils.
“Hyacinths are the most popular,” he said.
The Knights’ flower sale got somewhat of a late start on Wednesday. It was supposed to begin at noon, but the flowers did not arrive from the grower until about 1:30 p.m. The grower’s truck was stuck in traffic on Interstate 70 caused by a vehicle accident.
The bold, healthy-looking flowers were grown by Strader’s Garden Center of Grove City, Ohio.
“I order them in February. They have a huge greenhouse,” Gdula said, adding the Knights can take cash or a check at the sale.
The Knights of Columbus, which has councils across the country, was founded in 1882 by the Rev. Michael McGivney in Connecticut.
“Late-19th century Connecticut was marked by the growing fraternal benefit societies, anti-Catholic prejudice and dangerous factory working conditions that left many families fatherless. Recognizing a need in his community, Father Michael J. McGivney, the 29-year-old assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Conn., gathered a group of men at his parish on Oct. 2, 1881. He proposed establishing a lay organization to prevent Catholic men from entering secret societies antithetical to Church teaching, uniting Catholic men and helping families of deceased members,” according to the Knights’ website, www.kofc.org.
“To demonstrate their loyalty to their country as well as their faith, these men took Christopher Columbus — recognized as a Catholic and celebrated as the discoverer of America – as their patron. The Knights of Columbus elected officers in February 1882 and assumed corporate status on March 29.”

Even though Posada has faced some tough times, she continues to grow in her current endeavor. "I have a system, and I had to launch an e-commerce website," she said. "Aside from my weekly accounts, which are my staples, it varies each week. For example, this week and last week have been very slow. I only have four additional orders this week, whereas last month, I had 10-15 additional orders every week."
Posada is feeling hopeful that business will pick up with the holidays are approaching. "I hope the holidays have people feeling generous to gift people and treat themselves. I'm known for my winter and fall reefs. I love this time of year," she said."My cousin, who is an avid gardener, grew 500 poppy pods for me and drove them out from Texas. People have been at home and doing the same mundane routine for so many months now," added Posada. "Every time I deliver weekly flowers to people, it brings something new to their home. It's new, and it's colorful, it smells good. It has been made specifically for them, and I think that's just an immediate mood elevator for people."
