It is Time for a Breath of Spring

Saskatoon “ January 9, 2006 - It's that time of year once again.  The Lung Association of Saskatchewan would like to bring you a Breath of Spring by delivering fresh tulips to your door. 


Did you know that tulips were originally native to Turkey, Iran, Syria, and parts of Asia?  It was the Dutch who began to cultivate them in the 16th century.  During the middle ages, there was such tulip mania among the Dutch upper classes that merchants were earning up to $800 per bulb!  That would equal approximately $8 million per bulb in today's dollars!

Fortunately, our tulips do not cost that much.  We are able to offer them again for only $6.50 per bunch (5 tulips per bunch).  They will be delivered on February 21st or 22nd but all orders must be received by February 10th.

Collect orders in your office and you will be entered in the draw to win Lunch for Two, courtesy of Boston Pizza (

8th Street East
).  Additionally, your office will receive one entry in the draw to win a Gourmet Coffee Gift Basket donated by Colony Coffee & Tea for every ten bunches of tulips ordered.

Proceeds from this project support our important programs, services, and research in the areas of asthma, COPD (that includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis), lung cancer, sleep apnea, pneumonia, and other diseases of the lungs.  One in three people in Saskatchewan will suffer from some type of lung disease in their lifetime.  Help someone you know to breathe a little easier!

For more information or to receive an order form, please call 651-3118.   You can also order on line by visiting

When you can't breathe, nothing else matters!
