Note special time and location for August meeting.

The Mother Lode Rose Society is hosting a super sleuth and super fun meeting for members only in the beautiful garden of MLRS member and rose grower extra-ordinaire, Dorothy Wall on Tuesday August 2nd at 10 AM.  This special event is for members only, and we will be hunting for insects – beneficial and otherwise, along with learning how to identify various diseases and other various thorny issues.  Of course we will also have ample opportunity to enjoy the roses!
