President's Message
Mary Ann Hext

We finally got some much needed rain so I didn’t have to water my garden or roses this week. I have been away from home for about 31 of the last 44 days so my roses have really been neglected. One more rose show this weekend and then we will be home for awhile, so I hope to get them sprayed, beds cleaned, cut a few more bouquets to take to the nursing home, and then start thinking about getting ready for winter.

Our last garden meeting for the year will be at the Jacobs’ home on Friday. Please plan to attend as they have been busy working so that we will see their lovely rose garden and enjoy some fall refreshments and rose fellowship.

Bob Jacobs and Kathy Dodson are serving on the nominating committee for 2016 as we will be electing officers in November. We will need a president, secretary, and treasurer. Please think about becoming an officer and let them know if you will. Nominations can also be made at the November meeting.

We will be hosting the 2016 Tenarky Winter Workshop on February 19-21 here in Bowling Green so we will also be discussing plans for that. See you Friday morning!
