President's Message
Brenda Coffey

Unfortunately the BGRS Rose Show had to be cancelled.  Mother Nature and Father Time couldn't seem to get together for the benefit of creating roses by May 18.  But there is a new plan that will allow us to enjoy each other's roses.  Since June is traditionally when we start our in-club competition for the year,  this year BGRS is going to kick off our in-club competition with a small rose show at our June meeting.  All members are to bring their roses, label them and place them at the appropriate table(s).  For our Rose Show you may enter as many different roses in each class as you wish, but there cannot be duplicates of the same rose in the same class.  There will be a separate table for arrangements.  Arrangements may be from any of the classes listed  in our 2013 rose program.  Judging will occur, and a prize will be given to the Best of Show.  In-club competition points will be awarded to the top 3 entries in each class.  For our new members the points are kept each month and an award for the highest total is given at the December social.  (The in-club classes are listed within the Rosebuds.)

Hopefully everyone's roses are now blooming.  Since the roses from our show were to be taken to the veterans in local nursing facilities, we would like to follow through with that activity.  The details will be discussed at our regular June meeting.  Remember to bring any vases that you would like to donate.  Magazines and other items that you want to donate for use at the library need to also be brought to this meeting.  We also will need volunteers to take roses to the library throughout the month of June, so check your roses and sign up for their (and your) best time.  Our rose society offers lots of opportunities for you to serve.  See you on the 7th
