As part of the 10th annual national Teleflora event, all 45 of the retired Catholic sisters who live at the Motherhouse of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia received the flowers. They were part of the 125 “Make Someone Smile” bouquets delivered Wednesday by The Flower Gallery  in Concordia. The other sisters at the table are Sister Margaret Ann Bucher, right, and Sister Barbara Bader, with her back to the camera.
