Signs of a Hopeful Spring

DD_Indy Group.jpg Recently, FedEx locations in Indianapolis, Pittsburgh and around the country may have looked more like a flower farm than a package sorting facility to visitors and employees alike. That’s because this week marked the company’s 15th year of support for the American Cancer Society’s annual Daffodil Days spring fundraising event – a time when millions of daffodil blooms are prepared, packaged and delivered by FedEx Express and FedEx Ground team members to donors in dozens of cities across 10 states nationwide.

When is a Table Not Just a Table?

If it happens to be the one Vincent Van Gogh dined on every day in backroom of Auberge Ravoux where he lived in the attic during the last months of his life.
