Sorry about rose sale

To the Editor:

Our apologies to those Arc rose buyers who did not receive their roses this year. A glitch in the delivery system left us short 100 dozen roses.

Given the complexities of selling roses, Arc has decided to replace the rose sale with an annual bowl-a-thon. Self advocates are forming teams and our first bowl-a-thon will be May 31. Donations can be mailed to Arc, P.O. Box 674, Fairmont, MN 56031. Anyone with questions from the rose sale can contact the Arc office at (507) 235-8580.

Arc is co-sponsoring a presentation for the public by Sarah Mueller, who lives with a disability. Join us for the Special Olympics sendoff taco meal, followed by Sarah, at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 3, at Grace Lutheran Church in Fairmont.

Thanks to all of you who support people with disabilities and their families.
