Colonial District Pre-Spring Meeting and Seminars

March 2 & 3

Staunton, Va.

Warm Up With Roses


The Colonial District Pre-Spring Meeting and Seminars will be held March 2 & 3 in Staunton, VA at Christ Lutheran Church.  There will not be a formal CR recertification program due to the fact the seminars you have at your local societies may now count toward the process.  There will be a Chemical and Garden safety seminar for those who do need recertification.

We have two special speakers.  Diane Sommers, candidate for ARS VP will be giving a seminar on Saturday and Jon Corkern, ARS Membership and Development Director will be our banquet speaker.  The rest of the seminars will be: Chemical and Garden safety by Debbie Brown, Pruning Roses in The Spring by Ray Shipley,  Rose Trends for Today’s Gardener by Diane Sommers and Rustling and Propagating Roses by Connie Hilker

 Friday night will be a BBQ other activities are still being planned.


Meals will be catered as has been done in the past when we had the meetings at Christ Lutheran Church.  Your caterers are:

Barbara Shaner - if you have attended in the past you know her meals

Kay Shaner - Nutritionist for Augusta County

Jessica Shaner - Manager Ruby Tuesdays

Vickie Stevens - Preschool School Teacher
