Presented by Jerry Georgette
A Tour of Public and Private Italian Gardens; a chance for members and guests to get a view into gardens not usually open to the public. There will be specimen examples of OGR’s and Species roses, and modern roses will also be represented, perhaps different varieties (though) than what we see here in California. Please join us for what promises to be an info-packed presentation as well as a great trip!
Our Speaker: Jerry Georgette lives in San Carlos, is now retired, and is a Consulting Rosarian, as well as a Board Member and Editor of the San Mateo and Peninsula Rose Societies. He’s also been the past president of the Peninsula Rose Society, and the current NCNH District Roses in Review Coordinator.
Jan Soderstorm will send out an Email prior to the meeting with the information for Zoom access.

Hello Pruning Enthusiasts!
Thanks, thanks, thanks to the dedicated pruners of Dublin's Emerald Glen Rose Garden! On Saturday, January 23, we finished pruning!

During this January's efforts, we received many thank yous, thumb's ups and warm smiles from the park's visitors. Along with the infectious (non-Covid of course), happy comradery of fellow MDRS pruners, receiving the thanks of Dublin citizens is an awesome experience.
