On March 23, 2016, the Dedham Rotary Club delivered 100 floral arrangements to the residents of Traditions, 735 Washington Street, Dedham, to celebrate Spring's entrance.  Lillian Delmonico, Executive Director at Traditions, welcomed the Club to set up blue iris and baby breath in vases, tied with yellow and blue ribbons, Rotary's signature colors.  None of the residents were given advance notice of the delivery, and all were pleasantly surprised to receive their floral gift.  Rotarians met with them, while in the main dining room, enjoying lunch.  New friendships were formed, and Club members were happy to once again put smiles on the faces of our local senior citizens.   
 
Each spring, the Dedham Rotary Club chooses a new facility to deliver flowers to its residents.  Last year, it was Emeritus, now Brookdale, in Dedham.  The Dedham Rotary Club is committed to serving its senior citizens, and is grateful for the many contributions they have made to our community over the years.
