President's Message
By Dr. Charold Baer


From May 2018 Newsletter

Guess what! It is May and the roses are coming, the roses are coming! Well, along with the grass, the weeds, the heat and everything else. But, it still means that the roses are coming! There are so many great things happening in May. Do take the opportunity to enjoy them all, including your garden. Yes, it is time to spend a few extra hours, (or in my case, a few extra weeks), in your garden to get it ready for the Royal Rosarian’s 80th garden contest. Please see more details later in this Chatter. Also, remember Cinco de Mayo and get ready for the PRS extravaganzas in the Starlight Parade, at the Lloyd Center Mall and at the Washington Park International Test Garden. So many exciting events for you to get involved in!

It is also time for the Northwest Festivals to kick into high gear. Rich and I will be at the Apple Blossom Festival in Wenatchee, the Lilac Festival in Spokane, the 1999 Has Bens Festival in Lake Chelan and perhaps even the Hyack Festival in New Westminster, British Columbia, this month. In addition, of course, to participating in all of the wonderful events surrounding the Rose Festival, the Royal Rosarian Hospitality Weekend and the PRS endeavors.

The months of May and June are jam packed with all of the things that make living in the “City of Roses” such a wonderful experience. It is a perfect time for you to get more involved, celebrate you and revel in the joy of service!
