Our November meeting was a huge success!  Thank you to Tom Carruth for his fabulous presentation on “The Huntington Rose Garden.”  It was an honor to have this legendary rose expert as a guest speaker.  He is an inspiration, and as all would agree – such a nice guy too!  Thank you to the Ledger Dispatch for great coverage of the event, which attracted a big crowd (we had to get extra chairs to fit everybody in the auditorium.)  Thank you also to all who brought roses and arrangements for the Little Rose Show.  It was a wonderful way to end the season – educational, entertaining, and of course beautiful roses!
