Dear Fellow Members,

I would like to invite you to think of the final meeting of the rose year as the culmination of the preceding six meetings (October to March inclusive), a stupendous bench display, special awards to be won on the day irrespective of any previous participation during the year, an appreciation of all those exhibitors who have brought their roses throughout the year for your enjoyment, an appreciation of all the volunteer hours worked to keep your 65 year old Society vibrant, a cheerio to this President, and a warm welcome to your new President. And to experience yet again the BRS camaraderie and share our love of roses. And last but not least, take leave of each other in our meeting setting for a summer, but commit to staying connected as we continue to nurture over 300 roses for our SALE OF ROSES in NOVEMBER 2019, and to tend our Repository Garden at Waterville.

There will be a condensed trophy presentation format, and BELFIELD roses will be distributed to new members at a time and place convenient to them.

Offers of help in the following areas are keenly solicited! Please email me.

2 May 8.30-10am Set up

3 May (See timetable above) Receiving, stewarding, judging, refreshments

See you then!
