Fran's Flowers in Brewerton held its 50th anniversary celebration Saturday Jan. 16 to honor all the years the family business has had in the community. The shop, located at 9517 Brewerton Road, was opened by Frances "Fran" Van Epps in 1960.
Years later as the third generation steps in, Melissa "Missy" Van Epps-Goudreau is continuing the tradition as she runs the floral shop with her parents, Bob and Sandy Van Epps.
In honor of the 50 years of business, the Van Epps family and some close friends chose three winners in a drawing to win flower services during the Jan. 16 celebration.
Top three winners
1. $300 one-time flower service - Linda Wegerski, of Brewerton
2. $100 of flower services for 2010 - Tracy Freeman
3. $100 of flower services for 2010 - Rosemary Perez
