The Pink Ribbon Returns
Constructed Thursday at Hermitage Golf Course
It’s that pink ribbon time of year. This time each year we are thrilled to provide the flowering plants for and construction of a 30 foot pink ribbon honoring breast cancer survivors and remembering those who have lost their battle. The Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition (TBCC) was founded in 1995 to increase awareness of breast cancer issues to men and women in Tennessee. In just over 15 years, their efforts have led to a vast number of accomplishments in our state.
Today, the TBCC provides assistance to more men and women than any other breast cancer grassroots organization in the state. I ask you to consider supporting the TBCC along with Bates Nursery & Garden Center. Donations can be made directly through their website: www.tbcc.org.
If you saw yesterday’s Davidson A.M., it was hard to miss my mug on the front page. Elizabeth Johnson graciously did an article on Renée and me, along with a number of photos. If you care to read the article on the Tennessean’s website, search Bates Nursery at the top of the Tennessean website. If you want to see it in print, you’ll have to dig in the recycle bin; should be near the top.
As the thunder boomers move through this afternoon, it looks like the weekend will provide a bit of a reprieve from the heat. With high temperatures forecast to be only in the lower 90’s Friday and Saturday, it looks like the best time to dig in the dirt, in the near term, anyway.
As usual this time of year, we are trying to incentivize you to come out and save big on a few items. This weekend is no exception as we are offering a Buy One, Get One Free on up to three items. Buy up to three items and get three other items of equal or lesser value…free. This offer is good on anything we sell, in stock. This offer is not valid with gift certificates, deliveries, or in conjunction with Groupons. However, anything else from our vast array is yours for the choosing: Buy up to three, get up to three free this weekend and coming week. This offer good until Thursday, August 12, 2010 for BatesRewards members only (that’s you)!
Come out and have a free iced bottle of water or Gatorade on us!
