A local florist is taking part in a nationwide effort to help people pay tribute to those who served in the armed forces.
Amoré Floral Designs of Walla Walla will hand out roses at Mountain View Cemetery in Walla Walla and Mount Hope Cemetery in College Place on Memorial Day. Roses will be handed out before and after 11 a.m. ceremonies at the cemeteries.
Each visitor will receive one or two roses to place on a headstone to honor someone who served, according to a news release.
