A 2020 TRS Thank you
Happy Holidays to all our Members
As the year 2020 comes to its inevitable end – and we are all thinking of our families – I want to thank you for your support of the Tacoma Rose Society this turbulent year.
The last 9 months have seen drastic changes in all of our lives, but in spite of it all, we have pivoted to stay connected with fellow TRS members and to keep moving forward. During the pandemic, we lost the ability to personally attend monthly meetings, hold our annual rose show, and offer in-person training and certification for our consulting rosarians and judges.
However, our Board members, committees, and Staff worked together using new tools to create other opportunities for communication and fellowship. With this renewed effort, online informational meetings through Zoom were held monthly and the Queens Herald newsletter and new website continued to provide colorful and informative articles. We even had a “Rose Show and Tell” online.
All of this was possible because of the dedication and support from you – our TRS members – through creative ideas, donations, and dues over the year. So, thank you.
The Tacoma Rose Society is about more than just roses. It’s a living, breathing organization that’s dedicated to educating about the most beautiful flower in the garden. This dedication and support from each of you is what has kept it strong through 2 world wars – and now a pandemic – since 1911. And it shows.
Thanks for continuing to make this a legendary Rose Society – and Happy Holidays from your Board, Committee Members, and Staff.
