A message from our President Lou Evans:
Reluctantly, we are CANCELLING the Mount Diablo Rose Society Spring Rose Show, scheduled for Saturday April 22 at the Dublin Library. Simply, due to our abnormally cold winter and early spring, with lack of sun and heat, there are very few buds maturing fast enough to be ready to display and judge in 9 more days. The Board had discussed this recently via Zoom, and it was confirmed last evening at our General Meeting that there are just not enough flowers to justify having a show. Personally, I usually bring several dozen entries and I don’t even have ONE that would be ready to enter by the 22nd. And, there is cool weather forecast for the next week, with high temps breaking 70 only on Friday the 21st.
We may reschedule a display-only show for sometime in early May or early June, depending on circumstances. Information will follow.
I urge you to exhibit in the surrounding society’s shows scheduled for late April and early May, when you may have blooms ready to show off:
More information on the upcomming Rose Shows can be found here on the NCNH District Website.
