Letter from the Board

Dear Members and Friends,

We hope that you are staying safe, healthy, and happy. This Winter and Spring have been particularly difficult because of COVID-19 and its consequent restrictions.
The Southampton Rose Society has had to cancel its educational Pruning and Planting Session, The Children’s Mini-Rose & Art Program, its Rose Show and Annual Cocktail Party Fundraiser. But now that the summer is here, the Roses are in full bloom and our gardens are showing signs of new life in the form of scent, color and beauty.
As many of you know the Rose is our National Flower, New York State’s official flower, and it is now the official flower of Southampton Village. The Southampton Rose Society currently maintains five Rose gardens in Southampton Village and is contemplating creating another one at a soon to be disclosed location.
The present gardens are located at The Rogers Memorial Library, in front of the Cultural Center, on the side of Shippy’s Restaurant, at the entrance to the parking lot on Hampton Road near Town & Country, and off Job’s Lane beside the restaurant which was formerly Little Red, hope you visit and enjoy them!
With all good wishes,

The Board of the Southampton Rose Society
