Bowling Green Rose Show - 2011

Our 2011 Rose Show was held on May 21, at the American Legion Hall.   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 "Songs of Kentucky."

This  was the 49th year the Bowling Green Rose Society has held this event for the enjoyment of the people of Bowling Green and South Central Kentucky.     Co-chairmen of the Rose Show were Robert Jacobs, Kathy Dodson, and Mary Ann Hext.
