Any friend of yours is a friend of ours and is welcome. We will be starting our meeting promptly at 7:00 pm.

Please ask if you have any questions about ordering bare root roses from Palatines Fruit & Roses of Niagara-on-the-Lake in Canada. You can check out their website at We currently have 30 roses already ordered for our members! You can always order on your own but with our club order we receive a 10% discount. If you are considering ordering any roses, you want to let me know as soon as possible. I checked their website and already 44 roses are sold out and they just opened up ordering on September 8th. These are roses grown in our same climate conditions and very high quality.
