Congressional Action Days

Recently returned from Washington, D.C. where we walked the snowy Capital Hill to lobby our senators and representatives regarding floral industry and small business issues. It was cold and windy but a lot of fun to see other members of the Society of American Florists, adorned with flowers, marching across the Hill to see their own members of Congress. Senator Wyden was very welcoming and even agreed to pose for a quick photo. Overall, our appointments went well and we felt that our voice was heard and it felt good to participate in the democratic process.
