The Jacksonville Rose Society is a non-profit organization, established in 1954. Located in Jacksonville, Florida, we are an affiliate of The American Rose Society
As stated in our charter, the purpose of our organization is to encourage the scientific study of plants and their culture, specifically roses, both old and modern, and to encourage the planting of roses for civic beautification.
Meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month except for January, June, and July at the Garden Club of Jacksonville, 1005 Riverside Avenue. Our next regular meeting at the Garden Club will be on Tuesday, August 2, 2016. Our annual picnic will be held on Sunday, June 5. See below for details.
Our June meeting will be a picnic at Wayne and Lyndy Myers’ home on Sunday, June 5, at 1:00 p.m. The society will provide the meat, soft drinks, and desserts. Members are asked to bring a side dish. For the program Wayne & Lyndy will tell us about their trip to China to attend the World Federation of Rose Societies conference. Don’t forget to bring your lawn chair. Please give Lyndy a call at 272-7885 with the number of people attending so she’ll know how much food to prepare. Deadline to RSVP is Wednesday, June 1.
