Serendipity gives free roses to honor local fallen veterans on Memorial Day

  Serendipity Day Spa of Frankenmuth would like to honor all fallen veterans this year, both locally and in Arlington, by providing free Red Roses to be placed on their grave sites…..but they need your help in a small time span.  
  Local residents are invited to stop by to pick up their free rose Friday, May 27 after 2pm through Monday, May 30 at 6pm and place it on the grave site of family and loved ones who have served our country.  We want to not only remember the true meaning behind Memorial Day, but also pay our respect to those who have served and protected our freedom.
  Serendipity has purchased their Roses from the Memorial Day Flowers Foundation, and in doing so, they also provided 150 roses for the Foundation to place on grave sites in Arlington National Cemetery.  Supplies are limited to 250 roses, so be sure to stop in as soon as you can.
