Harold Harmon, owner of Walter’s Flowers and Interiors, will be sharing his Christian faith at the annual Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast at 7 a.m. May 2 at the Civic Center.
Cost of the breakfast is $7 and reservations need to be made to the El Dorado Chamber by calling 321-3502.
“I’m doing it for God,” Harmon said of his decision to accept an invitation to speak.
Harmon has attended the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast every year since it began, but will be the featured speaker for the first time this year.
Harold, his wife Linda, and their staff designers are known regionally for their artistic creativity in flower arranging, wedding and funeral planning and servicing, gift selection and decorating.
“I’m going to be incorporating flowers into the talk,” he said, “working with God’s creations.”
Throughout the years the Harmons have been in business, they have touched many families in ministering to them through family grievances, celebrations and other special events.
Harmon values his customers, and prays with some of them on occasion.
“We deal with emotions, whether it’s a happy time or sad,” he said.
Harmon will share how his faith has sustained him through his professional, military and personal life.
Walter’s has been nationally recognized in many local, state and regional professional publications and Harmon’s generosity with his time and talents is well known in this community.
His professional history will be of interest and surprising to some, as he shares about his life’s spiritual journey.
Harold and Linda are the parents of Amy Harmon and Sara Slayton and the grandparents of the two Slayton boys.
The El Dorado Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast is traditionally held on the National Day of Prayer. In addition to the breakfast, all residents of Butler County are urged to Circle the Court House for a short time of prayer at noon on May 2. Both events are interdenominational and open to the public. You do not need to be a chamber member to attend.
Newly elected El Dorado Mayor Mike Fagg will welcome the guests and local downtown business people will share scripture and music, emphasizing the faith practiced by business men and women in the downtown neighborhood.
The theme of this year’s national emphasis is Hope.
