The flowers were free but the smiles were priceless in Dixon Wednesday, when florists from Flowers Etc. joined more than 450 of their fellow petal peddlers across the nation to urge people to “Petal it Forward.” Florists handed out free flowers across the U.S. and in Canada during the event coordinated by the Society of American Florists. Flowers Etc. gave out flowers at Culver’s, where recipients got two bouquets: one to keep and one to share with a friend, family member, co-worker, or even a complete stranger – whoever they think could use a boost of flower power. You can follow the events at #petalitforward or go to shawurl.com/35yt for more information.
