President’s Letter

November 22, 2022

Members and Friends

I would like to say a few words to honor Michele Lindsay, who served on our Board as third VP for several years. Michele was kind, generous and a bright light among us. Her recent passing means she will be greatly missed.
For Michele:

The rose fades
and is renewed again by its seed, naturally
but where
save in the poem
shall it go
to suffer no diminution
of its splendor
—Poet William Carlos Williams (1883-1963)

Help support the Southampton Rose Society with our

Dear Members and Friends,

The Southampton Rose Society’s Guardian Angel Program, (GAP), helps fund the maintenance of the five (5) gardens in Southampton Village that the SRS maintains.
Each year a donor can be a Guardian Angel for any one or more of the five SRS Gardens.
A plaque, with the donor or designee’s name will be placed at the garden of his/her choice.
The cost per garden per year is $2500.
The Guardian Angel will be paired with the garden of their choice on a first come, first served basis.
Therefore, if your first preference has already been taken The Board will assign you to the next available garden, following your numbered preferences.
In the event that more than one donor earmarks the same garden, the designation will be determined by the postmark on the envelope denoting your preferences and check or if you choose to pay electronically via our website: by the time stamp sent from the website when you make your payment and denote your preferences.
Please consider filling the “gap” by joining The Guardian Angel Program (GAP), so that the Southampton Rose Society can continue to beautify the Village – which salutes the Rose, the official flower of the Village of Southampton  

The Board of The Southampton Rose Society

Yes, I want to support the Guardian Angel Program. The gardens are numbered in order of preference:

The Southampton Rose Society is an organization dedicated to beautifying the Village of Southampton by maintaining 5 public gardens including the magnificent Rose Garden at the Rogers Memorial Library. The SRS also offers numerous educational lectures by some of the world’s most famous rosarians, gardeners, photographers and perfumers.

Show your support by becoming a Rose Garden Angel!

Please help the Southampton Rose Society maintain the tradition of beauty throughout our village by making a contribution today.
