The American Legion in Albert Lea will again serve as daffodil headquarters.

Daffodils will be available during the week in rural areas and Friday and Saturday in Albert Lea at local banks, grocery stores and Northbridge Mall. 2008 also marks the addition of Bear R. Hope, a special Boyds Bear designed exclusively for Daffodil Days. The Gift of Hope, a bouquet of daffodils in a vase, can be ordered and delivered to a cancer patient of your choice in a hospital, treatment center or church.
