Past Events

Bellevue Historical Society will be hosting their annual Sunflower Sale with all of the proceeds going to the Tremont House Restoration Project.
On July 15, 2016 between 9am and 4pm,  stop by and purchase a big beautiful happy sunflower by the stem, or bring your own vase or whatever you prefer and have your sunflowers arranged in it with added greens.  Vases of sunflowers will also be already made up and ready for you to take home or give a friend. Order a fun Sunflower Cake for that small gathering of friend or family. Bellevue Historical Society is taking orders for these little beauties. And they taste delicious also.

10th Annual Sunflower Sale

Saturday, July 20th
9:00 a.m. till 3:00 p.m. (or until sold out)
108 N. West St, Bellevue 

2019 will mark the 10th year for the Bellevue Historical Society's sunflower fundraising event.
This year the sale will be held at the Society’s office at 108 North West Street, Bellevue. Since many of our flower shoppers have never seen the collection of Bellevue artifacts that BHS preserves and maintains, they can visit the Society’s office to take a look at some examples while picking up flowers.

Many thanks to Liz Kile for hosting the sale for the past nine years at the Golden Acorn and to the wonderful volunteers that have added to the success of past sales: Sandy Keller, Mary Magyar, Kerry Fenn, Alicia Robles, and Mary Mitchell. Anne Burkhart has donated beautiful and tasty sunflower cookies which are always a big hit.  George and Sandy Peacock have provided dinnerplate-sized sunflowers to add a special touch.

We are addressing quality issues with the flowers that were supplied last year, by working with different suppliers and growers. We will have FRESH and BEAUTIFUL sunflowers in typical colors and some different colors.  As usual, you can buy a stem, a prearranged bouquet, or bring your vase and flowers will be added. Annie will be bringing in those sunflower cookies.

SAVE THE DATE Saturday, July 20 from 9 a.m. till 3 p.m. (or until sold out) at 108 North West Street, Bellevue.
Funds raised will benefit the restoration project of the Tremont House

Beginning at 9:00 am, beautiful sunflowers will be available for purchase by the stem or a prearranged vase with gorgeous sunflowers accented with beautiful greenery.  We also have decided to make other changes to the sale day.  We will not be permitting you to bring your own vase this year to be filled, nor will we have cookies for sale. Unfortunately, both of these issues are results from Covid 19.
NEW this year we will be conducting a curbside (in our case alley) pick-up.  Many folks are not comfortable being out and about, so we are offering a prepay order option with Paypal, or you may contact us directly with your card information.

 - Direct prepay orders, please call Jeannie Gore at 419-483-5789 with your credit card information.
- PayPal prepay orders can be done on this page below by selecting your size of flower arrangment.
Purchases can be made in $15.00, $25.00 or $35.00 value vases.  All prepaid orders will be brought to your car starting after 10:30am in the alley behind 108 N. West St. Bellevue. Beat the heat and come early!
All presale orders need to be completed by Friday. July 17th at 8:00 p.m. 
Social Distancing practices will be followed on the 18th and we ask you to respect 6' from other shoppers.  

Thank you for supporting the Bellevue Historical Society and the Restoration Project of the Tremont House.  Your continued support is greatly appreciated!
