Bowling Green Rose Show - 2006

Our Bowling Green Rose Show was held on June 3-4, 2006, at the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at 807 Campbell Lane, Bowling Green.   There were exhibitors  from across the district with their garden grown roses which were judged by certified representatives of the American Rose Society. The theme of this year's show was "Mozart" in recognition of the 250th celebration of his birth.

This  was the 46th year the Bowling Green Rose Society has held this event for the enjoyment of the people of Bowling Green and south central Kentucky.   The 2006 Rose Show was dedicated to Jim and Nina Bennett, long-time members of BGRS.

Co-chairmen of the Rose Show were Dr. Kent Campbell and Robert Jacobs.
