Pollyanna’s Flowers and Things

|

Carolyn West and Cheryl Burress were special guests at the Corcoran Rotary Cub meeting Thursday, spotlighting the Business to Business program with information about Pollyanna’s Flowers ‘N Things.
The business has been a staple in Corcoran for the past 47 years and has been under the ownership of West since 1999. Carolyn actually started working in the shop in 1987.
A native of the Midwest, Carolyn grew up in Chicago and St. Louis, before she and her husband, Roy, moved to Corcoran. Mr. West taught school and coached baseball for several years before his retirement. The couple also raised their four sons here.
The family stayed involved in the community, notably in youth activities. Carolyn said she has never regretted living in a small town.
“We love Corcoran and its small town ways,” she noted. “Everyone who comes to Pollyanna’s becomes a friend.”
