The Greater Gwinnett Rose Society’s topic for the August 2nd meeting will be “Arranging Your Roses” with Sara Coleman and Henry Everett. Sara Coleman will talk to us on “Getting Ready to Show Your Arrangements.” Sara has clerked with several teams of judges and noted their comments as well as used just plain common sense and trial and error to come to a strategy that works to win her blue ribbons. Henry Everett has a natural eye for where a flower ought to go and will talk to us on the “ABC’s of Arranging.” He will break it down to the basics for arranging to enjoy in the home or give as a gift. Henry has used his talent to take home a few blue ribbons himself.

The GGRS is open to anyone who enjoys roses and wants to learn more about them. Meetings are open to everyone at no cost. GGRS has Master and Consulting Rosarians who are available to consult about your roses. We meet at 7 pm on the first Tuesday of most months. For more information, contact Kim Borland at
