District Director’s Message

Whether you are rich and famous or an inmate at the Jefferson County Detention Center, or all places in between, spending time cultivating a rose garden allows you to focus on the beauty of the rose and forget the world around us for a little while.

As your District Director, I represent you as a member of the Board of Directors of the American Rose Society. Growing roses in our district is challenging to say the least.  I’ve spoken loud and clear at the National meetings about the difficulties we face in finding roses to purchase that truly will survive in Zones 5 or 4 – especially in low humidity and strong winds.

I’ve had the opportunity to meet many of the big names in hybridizing today and National award-winning exhibitors. Rose friends are priceless and timeless, and the members of this district are among the best. 

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you as the Rocky Mountain District Director for the years 2016, 2017, and 2018.

Yours in roses,

Georgie Bever
