Also available are vases that consist of five carnations with greenery for $10 each.

The carnations will be available for pick up Wednesday, March 13 at the ICAP office, 525 E. Seventh Street, Rushville (inside the Booker T. Washington Community Center).

Delivery is available Wednesday, March 13 and Thursday, March 14.

Payment can be made in cash or check and is due upon pick up or delivery.

Volunteers will deliver carnations directly to your home, business, family, friends or anywhere in Rush County.

Green carnations make nice gifts to family, friends, shut-ins, local businesses, hospital patients and those that may be living in a nursing facility.
