It's a bit surprising that the flower basket campaign in Owatonna is now in its 14th year. Donations of any amount are gladly accepted. Simple drop off your gift at the Owatonna Chamber office. You may also mail your donation to the Owatonna Chamber 320 Hoffman Drive, Owatonna, MN 55060.

The first year a total of 175 baskets were hung throughout the city. Last year 90 baskets were purchased which when coupled with a donation of 10 baskets from Souba Greenhouse made it a total of 100 baskets. This years goal is 125 flower baskets. It takes around $100 per basket each year to purchase and maintain each it throughout the summer months into the early fall.. 100% of your donation goes toward these baskets. May 22 is the target date for the hanging of the baskets this spring throughout the city.

Sponsorship forms and more information can be found at the Owatonna Chamber web site.
