The COVID-19 crisis has caused cancellations all across the country. Pretty much all social gatherings big and small are being put off, including what has become one of the most popular events of the year in Edina. The Galleria 2020 Floral Experience with Bachman’s was supposed to run from Mar. 29 to April 12. The event would have featured 4,000 brightly-colored flowers set up throughout the Galleria’s public spaces for guests to enjoy. This year’s event theme was intended to be “Sugar Coated."
Rather than let the flowers grown specifically for the event go to waste, the decision was made to sugar-coat the situation and donate ALL of the flowers. Most went to Twin Cities nonprofits, and there were enough left over for every resident of The Waters’ nine Minnesota communities to receive a surprise delivery at their door. Deliveries were made to each of the company’s senior living communities on March 20,, and more than a dozen media outlets were there for the deliveries. In the Twin Cities, stories aired on KARE-TV, KSTP-TV, WCCO-TV and KMSP-TV. Print stories have published in the Star Tribune and MN Sun Current (Edina), Southwest Journal, , MN Sun Sailor - Plymouth , MN Sun Sailor - Eden Prairie, Highland Villager and White Bear Press. In Rochester, stories ran in the Rochester Post Bulletin, as well as KTTC-TV, KIMT-TV, KAAL-TV, and KXLT - FOX - TV
In addition to The Waters on 50th in Minneapolis, flowers were also dropped off at The Waters of Eden Prairie, The Waters of Edina, The Waters of Excelsior, The Waters of Plymouth, The Waters of Highland Park, The Waters of Oakdale, The Waters of White Bear Lake and The Waters on Mayowood in Rochester.
“ The goal of the floral experience is to bring an early touch of spring and make people smile. While that won’t be happening in the Galleria, we certainly hope to still bring smiles to the community,” said Rachel Oelke, Marketing Director, The Galleria.
“I’m comforted knowing that the beauty of these flowers will be enjoyed during times that are uncertain,” said Karen Bachman Thull, Director of Marketing and Corporate Communications for Bachman's Floral, Home & Garden.
“We feel so fortunate to be beneficiaries of this generous donation from The Galleria and Bachman’s. I can’t wait to see the smiles on the faces of seniors when their flowers are delivered to their apartments on Friday afternoon,” said Lisa Bien-Sinz, Vice President of Marketing for The Waters.
With the growing spread of COVID-19, the new normal for people living in the quarantine zones is going to be gathering virtually, rather than in person; but how does a business or school set all this up? And how about people working from home?

Due to concerns over the spread of Covid-19, the difficult decision has been made to suspend former Honeywell executive Ronald E. Peterson's book tour for his sci-fi thriller, Gardeners of the Universe.
Events that had been planned at the Barnes and Noble - Calhoun Village Shopping Center in Minneapolis, Barnes and Noble - Roseville, and Next Chapter Booksellers in St. Paul in March and April will be rescheduled at a later date. Fortunately, Peterson was able to appear at the Barnes and Noble in Minnetonka, Minn. (March 7) and the Barnes and Noble - Woodbury (March 14) before the tour had to be suspended.
Gardeners of the Universe begins in the not too distant future with the births of three children destined to change the world. Rianne grows up to lead biological revolutions. Dan creates sentient computers and guides the direction of human evolution. Sarah, in an age of information dissonance, becomes the most trusted individual on Earth, and convinces the world that it must change. What sets the three apart from the rest of humanity are genetics and “gifts” that were no accident.
The book shows how the children and their totally different families adapt to disruptive new technologies in transportation, medicine, communication, as well as global catastrophe. The focus is on how people will change themselves, through mechanical devices, augmented intelligence, and ultimately altering our genetics, and how these shifts will affect real people.
