    Drop off arrangement

    Hello,

    Can anybody help me with the bold text?

    When I was twenty, I got a job delivering flowers. Three days a week, I drove a maroon-colored Chevy van, the words FORGET ME NOT painted on the sides, down barren two-lane western Illinois county roads. There was a solitude to the job that I liked. As soon as the van was loaded and I drove away from the flower shop, no one could tell me what to do.
    Then there were Saturday mornings at churches, where weddings were set up; Saturday afternoons included dropping off arrangements for the following day's services.

    Thanks

    Re: Drop off arrangement

    'Arrangements' refers to floral arrangements (bouquets, centerpieces, etc.) His Saturday afternoon duties included dropping off these arrangements for Sunday wedding services.

    'Dropping off' means 'delivering'.
