Presidents Letter Feb 2011

An ill wind doth blow today, BUT it’s melting lots of snow away!! Okay, that’s the extent of my poetic side. It is indeed a blustery Valentine’s Day as I write to you, however it is in the relatively warm 40’s and I’ll take that as a sign of spring in our near future. The Chihuahua boys have had their first long walk since the icy blast of winter began – we bought them yellow boots for their teeny feet – they looked so embarrassed!
Bill Blok will be enclosing an order list of minis and minifloras with this newsletter so we will shorten our letter this month to save additional mailing cost. The rose sale is our annual fundraiser, so please order dozens of these lovelies for your garden and maybe for your friends’ gardens also.
Mark you calendars for Tuesday, March 15, 7:00 pm at the Meijer Gardens for a presentation of Harlan’s “My Favorite Pics.” He has worked feverishly on this program (having lost 8 hours due to a backup glitch) and I know it’s going to be a grand show.
Thanks to our newest member, Karen Fitz La Barge, we now have a website up and running. Grand Valley Rose Society of Michigan will take you to our site, although we haven’t much there yet. If you have something to contribute please let Karen know – she can use whatever you send her digitally – Take pictures, give us your super secret gardening hints, write news about your roses, or ask questions of the best and brightest consulting rosarians. Possibilities are endless and so is the space, so get going. Just contact her by posting a comment to this website!
