President's Message
by Bob Jacobs, Master Rosarian

This has not been a good year for growing our roses.  Very cold January then early warm up followed by late frost put our roses a couple weeks behind normal Spring growing. The rose show was originally scheduled for May 19, then re-scheduled for June 2. Just when we thought the weather evened out, storms and rain hit us almost every day the past week. Therefore, the rose show committee decided it best to cancel our show. We are planning a small rose show at our regular meeting date of June 10. Please bring roses and exhibit at this show.
