Last Wednesday some 300 florists across the United States observed the Society of American Florists “Petal It Forward” initiative. The goal is to make people aware of the joy of receiving flowers when not expected and then to experience the joy of giving a gift of flowers. Cosentino’s Florist, in Auburn, members of the Auburn Zonta Club, and Auburn High School students who are members of the “Z” club, a student service club sponsored by Zonta randomly surprised people in offices, restaurants and on the street in downtown Auburn.
