Southborough’s Friends of Council on Aging are asking the community to support their fundraiser. 50% of the sales from flower bulbs will benefit the non-profit that benefits activities and amenities for seniors.

The deadline for purchasing bulbs through the fundraiser is April 1st.

You can place an order online through the Dutch Mill Bulbs website or pick up a brochure with order form at the Southborough Senior Center (or the Southborough Library) to return/mail in to the Senior Center by the deadline.
