DISTRICT NEWS

The summer vacation for rose societies in the Pacific Southwest District is almost over.  If your local society has an
activity in mind, for a certain date, it is advisable to send in your schedule for inclusion on this website because
open dates are being taken by societies who are ramping up activities after a two month hiatus. 

BEVERLY HILLS ROSE SOCIETY received a presidential citation from Diane Sommers, president of the ARS, for their donation of 1,000 Rose Atlas books to help with annual fund donations.   This is an exceptionally excellent book
written by
Dr Thomas Cairns and Luis Desomero.   The book marks a giant step in coming rose horticulture with the
background supporting science.  Twenty chapters in 400 pages, full color, hundreds of rose images and illustrations,
hard cover, 7.25 x 9.125 inches and gold stamped.  Published January 12, 2022. 


NOTICE TO ALL LOCAL SOCIETIES:

If you are interested in hosting the Pacific Southwest District 2023 Convention, here's your chance.  The request has been made for a local society to step up and host the convention - nobody has responded yet.  If you are seriously considering hosting the 2023 Convention, contact Linda Clark.
