The Commencement Group
LDHSS Grad Bouquet

The Commencement Group will be onsite this year as an option for parents to purchase fresh flower bouquets for graduates. To further contribute to a safe and efficient environment for your graduates, guests, and faculty, they are strongly encouraging customers to take advantage of our online pre-order service. They will have a contact-free customer experience for guests who are simply picking up their pre-purchased and reserved product. This will also increase overall physical distancing measures. Guests can of course purchase directly from our on-site staff as well, however pre-ordering does ensure specific sizing, colours etc..
