Roy's Florist

Many of us, pass by Roy's Florist on our way to and from the temple. So it was a shock to hear about this weekend's fire at 710 Notre Dame Ave. We know the building from its landmark neon sign and the Japanese-Canadian mural on the side of the building. But, we also know the shop as the place where the Kaita family has worked for and supported members of our community for many years.

Roy's Florist has provided flowers the Manitoba Buddhist Temple since the store opened in 1962. The flowers you see on the hondo are often donated from Roy's. They also supply bouquets for funerals, weddings and other special occasions.

We hope the Kaita family can recover from this terrible incident. Customers who want to reach current owners, Michael and Kathy Kaita can email rfltd@mts.net.
