2016 Rose Auction: Sat Feb 20 at 10 AM. Room 3, Amador Senior Center, 229 New York Ranch Road, Jackson CA. Thank you for successful auction – over $1900 raised!
Thank you to our generous friends at Weeks Roses and Star Roses for the following roses – what a fabulous selection! A portion of the proceeds from the Rose Auction help to support the Senior Center Rose Garden, Amador County’s only public rose garden. Last year, a successful Rose Auction enabled the MLRS to help sponsor the new irrigation system at the Senior Center. Help make it a success again this year – and get beautiful roses too.
