Letter from the President

Dear Members and Friends,

I am pleased to announce that due to the relaxation of Covid restrictions in New York State we plan to hold all events this year.

Our first event, held in April, was our Planning & Pruning Workshop led by Peter Bertrand in the Rose Garden at Rogers Memorial Library. The Session was, as always, informative and enlightening.

In May, the Children’s Mini Rose and Art Workshop was held outdoors in the parking lot behind the Rogers Memorial Library. Each child learned how to plant, feed, and water their own Mini Rose.

Our Annual Rose Show took place on June 12. The event was held in the Morris Room at Rogers Memorial Library. We received many more entries than expected and were delighted by entries from new SRS members. Thanks to everyone who entered the show, our judges, and to the members whose hard work made it possible.

On July 12 we also had our first Rose Day in Southampton Village. Our thanks to all the shops and businesses who participated. We hope to make this an annual event.

The Southampton Village 4th of July/Independence Day Parade was back this year and we participated in it with our rose bedecked horse drawn carriage.

On August 6 we will be having our Cocktail Party Fundraiser. This event raises funds to support the maintenance of the 5 public gardens that we have created to enhance the beauty of The Southampton Village.. The party is chaired by Carole Guest. We hope to see everyone there.

Warm regards,

Jim Berkrot
