Rose Show update — Joanne Lester, Chair
It is September already and you all know that the preparations for the Rose Show are well underway. October 29, 2022 is our BIG EVENT at the CARD Center.
What most of you don’t know is that we have many dedicated members who have been busy all summer long. Beginning in early summer, the judges are invited; the show classes are determined; guidebook copies are sent off to NCNH chairs for approval; venue floor plans are drawn; articles for publications are written; and the guidebook is proofread and printed.
In addition to these tasks there are many, many other details that have been worked on.
August and September are the months that we are finalizing all of the details that bring the rose show together. Our managers are busy working on their areas. They are getting materials together, getting props out of storage, and putting their teams together. The hospitality team is working on meal plans, service areas, and pricing.
Our volunteers are why we have such a great show. If you haven’t volunteered yet, please do so. There will be signup sheets at the next Membership Meeting or you can call me and I will point you in the right direction. We screen all of our calls so if you call, please leave a message: 530-893-3763.
The Butte Rose Society presented their 'Annual Rose Show & Festival of Roses' on Saturday, October 30, 2021 at the C.A.R.D. Center at 545 Vallombrosa Ave in Chico, CA. It was well received by the public.
Heat, rain, wind, hail and COVID-19 didn’t stop the Butte Rose Society from having another exceptional rose show. YOU, our members never fail to amaze me. Fifty of you volunteered to work on a show committee, with most of you volunteering for more than one.
It was so rewarding to see some of you who have been dedicated for many, many years working along those of you that are new. Each and everyone of you went above and beyond our expectations. I am so proud to have been part of all of this.
I feel it is important to thank committee volunteers by name: Sandy Anderson, Cindy Ball, Mike, Dona & Chris Bertain, Ron & Kathy Brooks, Margaret Bergman, Russ & Jan Burnham, Judy Frederick, Lisa Freeman-Wood, Denyse Gonzales, Galand & Bernice Hallowell, Angie Handy, Karen Hansen, Karen Hanson, Linda Henderson, Fe Howard, Vicky Howell, Cindy Hutchins, Nancy Leverette, Mary McCormick, Jean Miller, Cathie Momber, Carol Mordock, Loretta Norberry, Perkee Perkins, Gene Petrie, Wendy Pine, Gwen Quail, Carol Roniss,
Steven Schoonover, Dave Sinclear, Alana Skytte, Bettye-Ann Stephens, Alicia Stewart, Margaret Swick, Laura Urseny, Marian Ware, Greg Williams, Jim and Leslie Wood, Debbie Wright and Neva Youngs. If I missed anyone, I apologize.
Three of our members served as judges. Thank you Judy Frederick, Lesa Lane and Jolene Adams. I also saw several members who had not signed up for a committee but came by to help out.
A huge THANK YOU goes each and every one of you!
The public picks: Linda Henderson’s fragrant rose — Kathy Brooks
Despite the pandemic mask mandate, we had a wonderful turn out at the Fragrant Rose booth this year. As the public entered the large hall at the C.A.R.D. Community Center, their eyes were glassed over looking at the massive display of roses in the main hall.
My table was directly to the left of the entrance door, so it was easy for me to usher them over to ‘Stop and Smell the Roses.’ I had several people decide they didn’t want to participate, but generally it was well received. We had 15 members exhibit their fragrant roses in the milk glass vases.
They were: Joanne Lester, Wendy Pine, Kathy Brooks, Judy Frederick, Marian Ware, Perk-E Perkins (2), Linda Henderson, Gary Imhoff, Sandy Anderson, Gwen Quail and Creekside Gardens (3). Thank you for your participation.
The contest was held from 1 to 2:30 pm. I was allowing the public to vote up to 3 pm due to the amount of public flow. Next year we will discuss why it would be better to have a time extension on the contest. There were many people who came later and expressed dismay that they did not get a chance to vote.
We had 75 ballots turned in by the public. Because it was a contest for the public, our members were discouraged to vote. It was fun to see the kids’ eyes light up when I handed them a ballot. Many families participated together. It was light hearted and fun to watch the excitement. One man thought he had to vote on ALL the roses in the room!
I am proud to announce our 2021 Fragrant Rose winner, Linda Henderson, who received 15 votes for her Fragrant Cloud. She is pictured here in front of her winning rose bush. Sandy Anderson came in second with nine votes. If you wish to know how your rose did in the contest, contact me by email email@example.com I took a photo of the ballot count and you can see how well you did. My rose, Sheila’s Perfume, had NO votes. Boo.
Butte Rose Society had a very successful in-person rose show on Oct. 30.
