Letter from the Board

Dear Members and Friends,

We hope you are staying safe, healthy, and happy. This past year was challenging for each of us and for the Southampton Rose Society (SRS). Although we did not have any in-person events during the year, in June several of our members donated their roses, grouped them into arrangements, and delivered them to our first responders at The Southampton Hospital, Southampton Fire Department, Southampton Village Police Department, Southampton Village Volunteer Ambulance Headquarters and to the residents and staff at The Hamptons Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation. 

At our Annual Meeting held in October, via a teleconference call, a new Board of Directors for 2021 was elected. 

We are working on this year’s program schedule as well as our new Guardian Angel Program, (GAP),( see details below) . Thank you for helping to make the 2020 season for the SRS a successful one, especially in light of the challenges faced.

The Board hopes that we will all take pleasure in preparing our gardens for the winter slumber, knowing that new blossoms will flourish in the warmth of the coming Spring. Wishing everyone a very healthy, and happy winter.
