3. We’re still taking rose orders up until March 30.  You can pay for your roses when you pick them up.
4. As noted below, we plan to reschedule our interactive Photography Workshop at a later date.

Stay well, everyone! Enjoy this beautiful spring weather – and don’t hesitate to reach out to anyone on the Board for information, reassurance – or if you just want to say Hello to a friendly fellow rose lover.  We’d love to hear from you!

Meeting Postponed!!
Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the well-being of our members, we have decided to postpone our meeting scheduled for this Saturday to another time. We were all looking forward to it and we WILL reschedule!  The weather is beautiful, so go out in your garden and give your roses some love -- they'll be sure to love you back!

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HAD A TETANUS BOOSTER?
A Tetanus Booster should be scheduled preferably every 5 years or at the most every 10 years.
