This is an opportunity to become acquainted with new people or to renew old friendships during MARTIN LUTHER KING, Jr. CELEBRATION DAY.
Wes hopes that everyone will make the time to share a rose with a friend, neighbor or stranger on this special day. Wesley Berry Flowers is a family-owned business that is celebrating its’ 66th Anniversary in metro Detroit.
