MS Society holding flower sale May 8, 9

Multiple Sclerosis is a dis­ease of the central nervous sys­tem that can lead to loss of bal­ance, double vision and even paralysis. Many of the 75,000 Can­adians who are living with MS are women – several of whom are mothers.

That is why the annual car­nation campaign is held each year on the Mother’s Day week­end.

Through the sale of carna­tions, the Wellington Coun­ty MS chapter raises funds for local programs and services, as well as research. 

The annual Carnation cam­paign in support of the Well­ing­ton County Multiple Sclerosis Society chapter will be selling assorted bouquets and pots of carnations.

Members of the public are invited and encouraged to pur­chase carnations, just in time for Mother’s Day on May 8 and 9 at Stone Road Mall and LCBO outlets and Beer Stores located in Guelph and Well­ington County.

The Wellington County MS chapter relies on community support of its fundraising cam­paigns in order to help close to 200 families in the area.
