Finally- Public Education is dedicated to providing Educational Services to everyone- and Close Caption Underwriting helps us provide a VERY Valuable service to the hearing impaired! Ocean View Flowers – and my friend Dan Vordale helped me secure the Closed Caption Underwriter Funding for Season 2 of J Schwanke’s Life in Bloom.  I am saddened that Ocean View Flowers did not survive- this global pandemic- however their memory and Flower Power – will continue on- with the Season 2- closed caption funding they provided- before they closed. The folks at Ocean View Flowers were always dedicated to helping the flower industry- and thus  their ability to provide this service to our audiences is something we will always remember!
