The San Antonio Rose Society of San Antonio, Texas, is a non-profit educational organization affiliated with the American Rose Society.
The rose is considered to be the queen of all flowers, and is our official national floral emblem. The objective of the society is to promote interest in all aspects of rose culture through a variety of educational programs and publications, rose shows, and rose-related community projects.
Membership is open to everyone who supports the objectives of the society. Annual membership to our rose society is $12 per family, which includes our monthly bulletin, "San Antonio Rose" and the SARS booklet, "How To Grow Roses". If you desire additional membership information or an application, please call one of the Consulting Rosarians or go to Membership for an application.
The COVID-19 virus is still around and positive cases have increased dramatically in June as Texas reopens its businesses and recreational activities. We don’t want to increase the risk to our membership. Accordingly, the Executive Committee is cancelling the July and August meetings.
Since all SARS meetings are cancelled, the Ways & Means Projects with our Sponsor Nurseries will be rescheduled when it is safe to do so. All summer activities will be re-evaluated in July and we will advise you of any scheduled events by e-Mail.
We will consider the September meeting later this summer. Our Fall Rose Show is now scheduled for October 31, 2020. This also will be reconsidered closer to the date.
Note that the South Central District Rose Show and Convention is scheduled for October 16-18, 2020, in Farmer’s Branch, Texas (Dallas area). I am sure we will hear updates later on that.
For now, be careful and stay safe. Please let me know if I can help with anything or if you have suggestions (210-313-3371).
