North Central District American Rose Society

Happy Belated New Year!

I know that those of you in the more northern part of the district have already seen several feet of snow so far this winter, but here in SE Wisconsin, we have seen very little and have actually experienced many days of above normal temperatures. Down here in Racine, we got  quite the fright on Halloween when 5" of snow fell during the day, but we haven't seen anything but a trace since! That could all change Friday as a major winter storm may track far enough north to bring us the first snow storm of 2020.

2019 NCD Convention & Rose Show was FanTastic!

It was a FanTastic rose show and convention weekend! Dear friends gathered; new friendships were created; and beauty and information were shared, all thanks to the rose.  The weekend started out on Friday night with the best hospitality suite ever, thanks to Susan Konkol and Laura Beattie who took the sports theme, FanTastic Roses, and ran with it. Our "referees" for the weekend, they worked hard to keep us in line.

Plan to attend the 2019 NCD Convention and Rose Show!
