Butte Rose Society's 2017 Events & Calendar

NEXT MEETING - OCTOBER 31st PROGRAM:

The Butte Rose Society is holding their monthly meeting on Tuesday, October 31st at 7:00 pm you are invited to come join the fun! Costumes are encouraged as it is Halloween! So dress as your favorite rose and join in the fun! This month the guest speaker will be our very own Mike Bertain.  Mike has recently returned from a trip to England where he learned a few very important things about roses and their care. Mike would like to share this new information as well as the rose photographs he took in England. His topic will include how roses in England are grown and cared for. The meeting is held at the Veterans Hall at 554 Rio Lindo Ave. Chico. If you have any questions feel free to call Cyndy, Program Director, at 530-966-5009  Hope to see you there!

October refreshments will be as a Happy Halloween theme.  The goodies can be sweet or savory...don't forget the deviled eggs. Try to be creative and funny. This will be Jerry, George, and Shari's last month of hosting the refreshments at each monthly meeting. We appreciate all their hard work and creative ideas.  Please tell them so at our meeting.

October's Little Rose Show Challenge Class 15: "Rose in a Bowl." It must be only one bloom of any variety. Should be typical of that variety with no colored water or foliage. You must provide your own bowl.

October's Little Rose Show Arrangement Class: "Haunted Fall"  It is a Traditional Line Mass Design.  Tip: Remember the line may be horizontal, diagonal, or oblique. Triangular with right or left handed sides or a zigzag and crescent, circular, spiral, and the Hogarth (S) curse are also possibilities.  Linear quality still predominates, but enough plant materials should be enhance the line and add depth to the length and width.

 
 
 
MEMBERS AWARDS
