It’s “Mimosa du Bonheur” time again! This Friday, January 30 and Saturday, January 31, volunteers will be all over town selling flowers called “Mimosa du Bonheur” to raise money for the Red Cross. For just a few francs, cheer up your home and help out a child in need!

All proceeds will go towards helping nearly 450 underprivileged children go on vacation.
