President’s Message – Jan. 2022

Virginia Boos


It’s a new year, with new hopes and dreams, new ideas, and a new Board and officers. Don’t hesitate to make your thoughts known to us. We have already discussed many plans for the future. We are motivated and hope you will join us with your own enthusiasm.

A member directory for 2022 is in my plan and we will be offering an orientation session for new members to acquaint them with our organization and committees, as well as our history. This is an important issue and we would like your input with ideas to make this successful. Contact a Board member to tell us what would be helpful to you.

Our time away from personal contact has been difficult, but the technology is now available so that we may be able to hold hybrid meetings, allowing 3 options. In person at the library, GoToMeeting at home and a big screen at Rose Haven Heritage Garden could be the choices. Stay tuned!

We need to get acquainted and feel comfortable again. When there is a chance, say “Hello”, pop a big smile and take a moment to introduce yourself. We all appreciate that human connection.

The list of opportunities to work with YOUR rose society is endless. So don’t be hesitant, we can use your help. It’s needed and very welcome. We are all partners in this effort. Sending a HAPPY NEW YEAR greeting.
