2019 Monthly Meetings

Rose Auction - November Meeting  
This is our biggest fund raiser of the year - and it's a lot of fun as well.  We bring out our own roses for sale, plus it's a great way for TRS Members to get a good selection of new roses at a fantastic price.  So, make a list of your plant needs - bring some friends - and lots of cash to support TRS !

Fellowship, home made foods, & installation of new TRS Officers.

Tacoma Home & Garden Show - January   
We run an informational booth with showboards & handouts to help kick off the New Year.

Spring Pruning - March

Donated bushes from TRS & Metro Parks are put out for our largest public sale at the Pagoda on a Spring morning.


Annual Rose Show - June

Each June we run an ARS authorized Rose Show in Tacoma, where growers & arrangers show their stuff. A group of regional ARS judges visit each class in the show, agree on the quality of each entry, & decide on a best-in-class winner.
Trophies & Certificates are handed out to the winners in a grand ceremony at the end of the day, with a picture taken with the current President of TRS as a memento of their hard work.


Summer Picnic - August  

Our biggest Member potluck on a great afternoon of fun (and games.)


TRS Public Events

We work year round with the public at different venues, demonstrating & educating about our passion.
