Edmond public safety workers appreciated with smiley mugs
EDMOND — Downtown Edmond Business Association members and Madeline's Flowers presented Edmond police, firefighters and dispatchers with ivy plants in smiley mugs this week to show appreciation for their service.
For 17 years, Teleflora, a floral wire service company, has donated the iconic yellow mugs to thousands of participating florists nationwide for their annual "Make Someone Smile" program.
"It is an annual summer event that brings a free bouquet to those in need of a smile," Madeline's Flower shop owner Barbara Bilke said. "Last year, more than 25,000 floral arrangements were delivered in North America."
About 250 bouquets were delivered to the Edmond Public Safety Center.
