Here we are already in October! This will be my last
President’s Message since my year as President will be over this month. This past year has been so memorable and filled with such wonderful experiences. I have had the opportunity to meet and visit with so many people in many different places and represent the Portland Rose Society. I was part of the Rosarian Red Cape Rose Planting team at rose plantings here and also in several community rose gardens throughout the Northwest during their community festival celebrations. I participated in the Rose Festival parades and events, as well as our own PRS Rose shows and our meetings. I got to meet members of the Royal Rosarians and Portland Rose Festival Foundation.
Each and every person and experience throughout this year has been nothing short of uplifting to me. I will always remember this past year – a “once in a lifetime” year filled with amazing people and memories. Thank you- Thank you – Thank you, Portland Rose Society members for all of your support, and all you do
for the Rose Society. See you at our October meeting!! Kathy
