Boone County Chamber Impact Award Recipient for the Month of February

Congratulations to Mount's Flowers & Gifts for being nominated and selected as the Chamber Impact Award recipient for February! The Chamber Impact Award recognizes a Boone County Chamber member who has made positive contributions to the Boone County community.

Mount's Flowers & Gifts is among one of the oldest established businesses in Boone County. The store was founded in April 1946 by John Mount and family. Lana Hale and Maxine Uhler began working for John in the 1980's. Lana and Rick Hale and Lanny and Maxine Uhler purchased the store in November of 1985. Mount's Flowers & Gifts is a full service florist and gift store serving Boone County. Lana and Maxine are floriculture leaders for 4-H and enjoy helping the children by giving back to the community. Lana is the Teleflora Indiana Unit President for the third year in a row. Through Teleflora they are involved in "make someone smile week" in July. They fill donated Teleflora ceramic smiley face mugs with plants and fresh flowers, all made possible with generous donations from their wholesalers. They deliver them to various locations around Boone County. The Mount's Flowers & Gifts team enjoys adding brightness and smiles to the days of those who receive these mugs.
