DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE

Linda Clark , Director
ARS Pacific Southwest District

HOORAY, HOORAY!!!! 
We are going to have a District Rose Show and Convention.
It will be hosted by the San Diego Rose Society June 12th and 13th, 2021 at the Courtyard 
Marriott in El Cajon, 141 North Magnolia Ave, El Cajon, CA 92020

 

After more than a year without an in person rose show, I would like to invite everyone to come join us. Safety protocols will be in place, with masks and distance. I hope we can all be ready to make this a huge success. There will be the usual District Challenge classes as well as many of the classes the San Diego Rose Society show usually features…The schedule will be posted on the District and the San Diego Rose Society websites. The show on Saturday will be open from 1-7 and will feature a silent auction of unusual, hard to find roses.

 

We will have Saturday afternoon meetings for CR’s, horticultural and arrangement judges. They will be led by our District Chairs. (hopefully) It will be so nice to see everyone and be able to talk and answer questions in person. 

 

On Sunday the District Meeting will be at 10:00 am. It will be the business meeting with elections for Prizes and Awards and the next term Secretary. Please come and be counted. 

 

The weekend will culminate with our District Awards Luncheon and Live Rose Auction. Rose show awards will be presented and we will finally be able to present district awards to all the winners for 2020 and 2021. Bob Martin will be our auctioneer for the Live Rose Auction. Please save the dates and plan on a fun time! Questions?…linsline@cox.net

website soon -
