On Thursday, August 8, at its regular meeting, the Humboldt Rose Society will be holding a rose show with limited categories. The meeting is open to the public and all are invited to bring a rose, or more than one rose, to enter. If you have never shown a rose before, or are not sure what variety of rose you have, this is a perfect opportunity to learn. The group meets at Christ Church, Episcopal, in the Lewis Room, at 15th and H Streets in Eureka, 7 p.m. (entry on 15th). Ample parking at 14th and G St. There are always refreshments, door prizes, and a warm welcome to guests, long-time rose growers, or "wish-they-were's," with helpful information available. For questions about the group or the meeting: (707) 822-4716 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Information about the Rose Society and roses is available at the Society's website, www.humboldtrose.org.
