"We are thrilled that the staff at Lueken's Village North continues to support our fundraiser by allowing us to use their location for this important event," a release said.

Proceeds from the rose sale go to many local projects, including the interactive playground at Paul Bunyan Park and the natural playground at North Country Park, dictionaries for all third-graders in the Bemidji school district as well as outlying school districts, scholarship and youth leadership camp registrations and more, the release said.

A few extra roses may be available for on-the-spot sales. Any roses not picked up by 6 p.m. on Friday will be donated to nursing homes and care facilities, the release added.

Tickets can be purchased from any Rotarian, online at bemidjirotary.org or by contacting Rose Sale coordinators Craig Clark at caclark1967@gmail.com or Lynn Eaton at eaton.lynn@mail.com.
