Meme's Florist gets new owner; Local hotels form green alliance


New owner at Meme’s Florist

CORINTH — Bobbie Tompkins spent fifteen years working as the lead floral designer and manager at Meme’s Florist. 

On June 1, Tompkins made the move from manager to owner when she purchased the business from Kay Moberg. 

Meme’s is one of the area’s leading florists specializing in creating custom arrangements and gift baskets for special occasions and holidays. 

Tompkins specializes in designing wedding arrangements and recently said that with her new ownership she plans to expand Meme’s wedding services. Although Meme’s currently delivers to surrounding towns, Tompkins also announced she will work to strengthen the shop’s relations with its customers in Saratoga, Glens Falls and Lake George.

The Courtyard by Marriott and Residence Inn recycle with Clean the World

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Courtyard by Marriott and Residence Inn in Saratoga Springs recently announced an environmentally friendly initiative with Clean the World, a Florida based social enterprise organization. 

Clean the World is a not-for-profit corporation that seeks to prevent suffering around the world by collecting and recycling soap products discarded by hotels everyday. The organization then distributes these soaps and shampoos to people in need in developing countries to help prevent the diseases and deaths caused by hygiene-related illness.

The local Courtyard and Residence hotels will collect leftover shampoos, conditioners and soaps from their combined 246 rooms to donate to communities in need. The new partnership is expected to save over 2,000 pounds of soap and 1,585 pounds of bottled hygienic products each year, which would be enough to provide almost 200 children with bath and body products each month for a whole year. 

What a great move for Saratoga’s Courtyard by Marriott and Residence Inns!
