The Cape Cod Rose Society
On Saturday, October 27th, 2018 the Cape Cod Rose Society had its first meeting at the home of Irwin and Cindy Ehrenreich in Barnstable, MA. The new rose society was founded by former members of The Lower Cape Rose Society, The Ehrenreich and Oz & Audrey Osborn. The group is looking at various options for a permanent time and location for its monthly meetings.
At the first meeting, Irwin gave an introduction to the American Rose Society, Yankee District and local rose societies. This was followed by a presentation by Cindy Ehrenreich on Miniature and Miniflora Roses.
Future meeting will include lectures by the groups Consulting and Master Rosarians, guest speakers, a District Convention in March in Brewster, a rose show in June and garden tours during the rose growing season.
We would like to invite all members of the Yankee District to come to our future meetings and help us to build this rose society.
