SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Flower and Fruit Mission staged their Spring Luncheon May 21 at the Hall of Springs. 

Founded in 1904, the Flower and Fruit Mission has supported Women’s Health Services at Saratoga Hospital for more than 100 years and has, for several decades, sewed thousands of blankets, caps and clothing items for the infants born at Saratoga Hospital, provided flowers and fruit for new mothers, and made countless jars of homemade jam for hospital meals and annual fundraisers. 

The organization holds two popular annual fundraisers: The Spring Luncheon in May and The Snow Ball in December, and to date has raised over $1.3 million for equipment, scholarships, facility improvements and nurses’ education.
