No Poinsettia Sale

      After much considered thought this summer, the DSO Board ofDirectors has decided not to hold a Poinsettia Sale this holiday season, except for large orders.  The competition has gotten fairly stiff and we are no longer permitted to market them in Lansing.  The plants have always been grown locally at:

Panse’s Greenhouse, 7594 Douglas Ave., Kalamazoo
