Glenlea Plant Fundraiser

Hi everyone,
We are pleased to offer another McConnell School of Dance fundraiser…

The Glenlea Greenhouses Plant Fundraiser!

Glenlea Greenhouse catalogs are available at the studio beginning Thursday, March 02, 2017**Plants can be viewed, ordered and paid online at www.glenleagreenhouses.com . The catalog and extra order forms for download are also available online so that your customers can view the full color catalog anytime…just click on the fundraising button.  If choosing to order online, once the customer(s) have finished choosing their plants on the website, there is a field in the “Shopping Cart” just before the checkout where the “name of the dancer you are supporting with this Fundraiser” is put.  This is the name of the person the order will be directed towards (dancer’s name).  Next they will need to fill in their own personal information.  Then continue to the Shipping Method where they will select our groups name, McConnell School of Dance, from the shipping method list at the end of the checkout process prior to payment with VISA, MATSERCARD, or AMERICAN EXPRESS credit cards.  Online orders can be placed until Sunday, April 9, 2017 and paper orders must be received by Thursday, April 6, 2017 (see below for information on paper orders).

For customers who wish to pick out their own plants, Glenlea Greenhouses sells plant cards for purchase in $25.00 denominations. Plant cards can be redeemed at not only their greenhouse between Monday, May 1 - June 30, 2017, but also at their booth at the Farmer’s Market in St. Norbert and Downtown Biz Hydro! Plant cards will be delivered after April 24, 2017.

All online orders received will be sent directly to the fundraiser coordinator and payment will already have been made.   I will provide you with any online orders sheets that have come to me with your dancer’s name on it for you to deliver.  All your paper orders must be compiled and submitted on 1 order form per dancer. Please check over all order forms to ensure accuracy and that correct payment has been received.  Make sure that you give yourself plenty of time to compile your orders onto the 1 order form for submission. Keep the individual order forms at home to help keep track of your orders once you receive delivery of the plants.  We are able to accept cash (exact change) or cheques for this fundraiser for paper orders.  All cheques are to be made out to MSDSA and submitted with the order.   Unfortunately, no late orders will be accepted.

Plants will be delivered on Sunday, May 28, 2017 to 49 Riverside Drive (corner of Riverside Dr. and Byng Place).    THE DANCER/DANCER’S FAMILY IS RESPONSIBLE TO PICK UP THEIR CUSTOMER’S ORDERS AND DELIVER THEM.  All plants must be picked up between noon and 1:00 pm that day.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this fundraiser, please don’t hesitate to contact Jacquie Cumming at jacquie4@mts.net .

Thanks again for your continued support.
