April Program

Showing & Sharing Our Roses With Others

Bring Your Favorite or Your Best Rose to the Meeting

Bring just one of either your favorite rose or the best blooming rose in your garden to the meeting on Tuesday, April 7th. Bring it in any container with water—a bud vase or a glass.

Here’s a wonderful opportunity to share with others your favorite or your best blooming rose. And there will be no judging, just sharing. As you know, one of the key functions our rose society, as well as the American Rose Society, is to share the beauty of our roses with others.

We will have a panel which will discuss each rose on display and talk about showing roses at our annual rose show which is the following Saturday, April 11th. Since those of us who exhibit
roses, took that important step to exhibit for the very first time, I’m asking each panel member to share with us his or her first time exhibiting experience. This is a great opportunity to see beautiful roses, hear of first-time showing experiences, and get some great tips on exhibiting.

The panel will also discuss various elements of the show schedule--horticulture, arrangements and rose photography. Of special interest to new exhibitors is the section in the schedule just for Novice Exhibitors. Winners in Novice classifications are equally qualified for top trophy prizes.

We will have rose show schedules available as well as a supply of entry tags for the show. Of course, we’ll answer all the question you may have about exhibiting roses.

So come to the April meeting, bring a rose, and join the fun.

Liz Strong, Vice President"
