Blake’s Floral Design and Wells Fargo have teamed up in the city of South Lake Tahoe to proclaim Sept. 20 as the second annual Good Neighbor Day.

On this day, Blake’s Floral Design and Wells Fargo will give away 5,000 roses from two locations: Blake’s Floral Design at 1038 Winnemucca Ave. and Wells Fargo Bank at 110 Highway 50 (Edgewood Tahoe location). Doors will open at 8 a.m. at Blake’s Floral Design and 9 a.m. at Wells Fargo. Roses will be given out while supplies last.

An estimated 420 people can receive a dozen roses with one condition: they keep one rose and give the other 11 away along with a greeting to neighbors, co-workers or even strangers as a gesture of goodwill. Also invited to participate in Good Neighbor Day are numerous local and state community leaders.

Sharon Buckley, owner of Blake’s Floral Design, feels this event is a positive step toward making the community an even better place.

“A positive event such as Good Neighbor Day is important in bringing our community together,” Buckley said. “I encourage the citizens of South Lake Tahoe to participate in Good Neighbor Day and spread goodwill throughout our community.”

The South Lake Tahoe City Council has issued a proclamation recognizing Sept. 20 as Good Neighbor Day in South Lake Tahoe.

“Good Neighbor Day offers members of our community a wonderful opportunity to reach out and say ‘hello,’ ‘thank you,’ or ‘nice to meet you,'” said Scott Crawford, district manager with Wells Fargo in Lake Tahoe. “We are proud to support Blake’s Floral Design in its second annual event.”

Anyone living or working in South Lake Tahoe is invited to participate. Businesses or individuals interested in sponsoring or volunteering for Good Neighbor Day can call Sharon Buckley at (530) 541-4748.
