Cameron Pappas with Norton’s Florist said, “It all started as a way to say thank you to Veterans about 15 years ago. What better way to bring a smile and joy to a person than with a rose, especially when you’re in the hospital. The roses are a way to show thankfulness to Veterans for their service.”
