At G&E Greenhouses in Elburn, Batavia Lions Plant Day Chairman Lori Wilson chooses flowers for the May 12 sale planned at scattered locations across Batavia.

BATAVIA – A tradition for 36 years, the annual Plant Day Sale will be presented from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 12 by the Batavia Lions Club, offering hanging baskets of locally grown flowers just in time to treat mom for Mother’s Day.

The event proceeds will fund the Batavia Lions Scholarship, awarded to a graduating Batavian who is going on to college or trade school who exemplifies unselfish service to others, particularly those in need, a news release stated.

Rainbows of flowering, hanging baskets will adorn three roaming hay wagons traveling neighborhoods on the east and west sides. In addition, three hay wagons and trailers will be stationed at the southeast corner of Wilson and Water streets near Prairie Path Cycles; the southwest corner of Wilson and Prairie streets near the 7-Eleven store; and the intersection of Main and Mallory streets.

The wide variety of flowering plants in the sale will be from G&E Greenhouses in Elburn.

The Batavia Lions Club is an all-volunteer service group of women and men who serve the community by assisting with civic projects and helping youth, people in need and individuals who are sight- or hearing-impaired.
