Bill O'Shea's Florist Gave Away
1,000 Dozen Roses
For Good Neighbor Day


On September 1, 1999, beginning at 8 a.m. Bill O'Shea's Florist, 109 Boulevard (at the Circle) in Hasbrouck Heights, gave away a minimum of 1,000 dozen roses (that's 12,000 roses) absolutely free to anyone who visited the shop. Dozens of roses were given away on a first come first served basis. No purchase was necessary.

According to Bill O'Shea, "The only stipulation was that those picking up the roses were asked to keep one for themselves and to give the other 11 roses away to 11 different people and in so doing, help create a friendlier, more caring and compassionate community. Good Neighbor Day is a day designed for people to meet and get to know their neighbors. A rose is the perfect expression of friendship and love."

Area residents will had an unprecedented opportunity to meet each other, make new friends and renew acquaintances on Wednesday, September 1, when Bill O'Shea's Florist hosted Good Neighbor Day for the fourth year.

Adding to the festivities, Jukebox Radio 103.1FM broadcast live from Bill O'Shea's showroom from 10 a.m. to noon.

Bill O'Shea's Florist established in 1969, is celebrating their 30th Anniversary.
