Another important rose activity that is scheduled for the coming month, is the Spring Convention, to be held in Bad Axe, MI. This is a combination educational and social event that occurs each spring. This year it is to be held in Bad Axe, on April 8 & 9 (Friday & Saturday). Most of the activities occur on Saturday, but most of the rosarians that come from the west side of the state, drive up on Friday afternoon, and stay in one of the motels in town. Typical of these conventions, there is a “Welcome” gathering on Friday evening, which includes a light pick-up meal, and lots of fellowship with other rosarians.
The Saturday events include several educational seminars, a noon lunch, and a (hopefully) short business meeting.
Irv Ignash is the father figure of the Bad Axe society. He is one of the Grand Old men of the Great Lakes District. In late years he has been suffering from numerous physical ailments. We hope he will be well enough to enjoy this convention with the rest of us.
