Brotherly Love: The Happy Flower Day Project - CBS Philly
My car always smells delightful,” she said.
Gallagher, who lives in Worcester, rescues flowers from plant purgatory. She got the idea six years ago, with her mom, Claire Mohan and friend Bob.
“And somehow the thought came to me to approach grocery stores and ask if I could pick up their day-old flowers,” Gallagher said.
Some said yes, and the Happy Flower Day Project was born.
Several times a week, friendly (and anonymous) florists fill Gallagher’s car.
Brotherly Love: Stroke Victim Becomes Beacon Of Hope For Patients
“And then I just say, ‘God, where do you want these flowers to go to? Who needs them?'” Gallagher said. “And a thought will enter in my mind, like an AIDS hospice, a nursing home.”
On this day, they’re destined for Wesley Enhanced Living in Germantown. It’s one of her favorite drop-off spots.
“Annie, I met you the other day!” Gallagher said cheerfully.
She delivers the bundles of bouquets personally with a smile and a song, “Happy Flower Day to You,” to the old birthday tune.
“And I never give people just one,” Gallagher said.
Amy Vanbrug, director of therapeutic recreation, said she remembers the first time she met Gallagher.

‘I love ’em to death’: Kennewick woman gives home to hundreds of neglected tortoises - The Seattle Times
She is a very social girl,” explained Meyer, who took in Cossett after another animal rescue went out of business. “Very mellow. And she’s a great hunter.”
Cossett is one of more than 200 tortoises that Meyer is caring for in her backyard — and she can identify every single one of them by name.
There’s Xenia, a three-toed box turtle who lost parts of her shell to rot; there’s Lewis, a sulcata tortoise whose shell has pyramided, leaving it bumpy and uneven, due to malnutrition; and there’s Hemingway, a Greek Ibera tortoise who now does regular water therapy after he nearly froze from spending almost an entire winter outside.
About four and a half years ago, Meyer launched the nonprofit rescue Northwest Tortoise out of her 1,800-square-foot house at the end of a Kennewick cul-de-sac. There, she offers injured, malnourished or neglected tortoises sanctuary.
“There is a huge gap of correct knowledge between the pet industry and what is actually correct keeping,” Meyer, 48, said of caring for tortoises, which are gaining in popularity as pets.
Meyer bought her first tortoise, a Greek Ibera, from a reptile show in Tucson, Arizona, more than 20 years ago. The breeder gave her some advice on care and diet, and Meyer took her new pet home. The tortoise was dead 13 years later — decades short of its typical life span.
“That’s what started me on this quest to learn something,” Meyer said.
Meyer started ordering books on tortoise care, reading research papers and reaching out to other animal experts. She quickly learned a lot: Males and females sh... Jul 26, 2019
Flowers Left At Firefighter Memorial Mural - The Newtown Bee
Botsford Fire Rescue (BFR) members were surprised early last week when a bouquet of red and white roses was left at their South Main Street station by an unknown visitor.
The flowers appeared on June 18, according to BFR Firefighter Wayne Geitz. They had been placed on the sidewalk in front of a large mural that was painted on the northern wall of the fire station one month ahead of the tenth anniversary of 9/11 by former Newtown resident Rob Lee.
After their discovery, the roses were put into a vase by one of the company’s firefighters. When wind continued to knock the vase over on subsequent days, a cement block was also put on the sidewalk so that the flowers and their holder would remain upright, according to Mr Geitz.
“We’re not sure who left them. It was a nice surprise,” Mr Geitz said. “We are thinking that the day they showed up must mean something to someone who was affected by 9/11.”
Botsford Fire Rescue is one of five volunteer fire companies in Newtown. Its station is at 315 South...
