ANNOUNCING: American Rose Society Arrangement School and SeminarBE A PART OF IT!
by Frank Brines
Our society has been given approval to conduct a two-day ARS Arrangement School for the Pacific Southwest District right here in Temecula in October 2016. I am forming a committee to plan and setup the event.
Does that seem a long way off? IT ISN'T!
Dozens of experienced and aspiring rose arrangers will join us for this school which will be conducted by ARS-certified experts. You can do your part by helping us with the planning and logistics. This is a very significant opportunity for our society to make a positive contribution to (and impression on) the other rose societies in the Southwestern United States.
What will our committee handle? Planning and execution for venues, breakfasts, snacks, luncheons, hotel accommodations, setup and breakdown of the rooms, and other important activities.
I know that I can count on you-and I'm going to personally invite you if you don't contact me first! Please call me at (951) 315-9632 or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. MAKE US PROUD!
December Families in the Gardenby Lea Cline
Last month in Families in the Garden we planted tulip bulbs in the Quilt Garden, planted garlic in the Tree of Life, as well as harvested our autumn vegetables, which included radishes and lettuces. A good time was had all around, especially at the craft table, where diagrams of tulip bulbs were available for the children to draw and label.
However, this month due to the third Saturday of this month interfering with the upcoming holidays, we will not be having a Families in the Garden meeting or program. The next event will be on January 16, 2016. We will be planting herbs, onions, and other winter vegetables . For more information please contact Alicia Cline at 951-234-2218 or email@example.com.

December Birthdays & New Members
Rose Haven Updateby Bonnie Bell
Just a few days ago our gardening angels Jim and Laurie Moss returned to California and were already working frantically away in the Old Garden Rose (OGR) area. One cannot imagine how tall some of the OGR varieties have grown. The beautiful bench is visible once again. Hooray!
Starting January 2nd we will begin pruning the roses along the driveway. Every Wednesday and Saturday will be dedicated to rose pruning starting at 9:00. An hour or two of your time will be greatly appreciated. More details about pruning and instruction will be in next months' newsletter.
Our Next garden committee meeting is Wednesday, December 16th at 9:15. We are discussing projects for 2016. Erosion control, shading the education area, and selecting replacement roses are on the agenda. Members interested are always welcome to attend the meeting. The Garden address is 30592 Jedediah Smith Road, Temecula.
