A Great Way to End Our Growing Season…

A wonderful night at the beautiful Serenity Restaurant in Zionsville where the food and the company was amazing. It was a night for awards, stories, friends and 2018 board installation.

Outgoing President Linda Kimmel gave out several awards.

Certificates of Service went to Eloisa Garza, Humberto DeLuca, Donna and John Hefner, Mark Nolen, Carol Tumbas, Teresa Downham and Keith Oltean for their excellent service.

The ARS Award of Merit was given to incoming President, Teresa Byington.

Marilyn Ferguson was shocked to receive the ARS Bronze Medal. Although no was else in the room was one bit surprised. A much deserved award indeed!


The 2018 Board was installed by the clever words and the gift of an excellent pen from John Hefner.

This team is enthusiastic and ready to go. They are already busy making plans for next year so stay tuned.

After a long winter’s nap, we will be back at it and ready to go the 2nd Tuesday of March at 6:30 pm at Sullivan Munce in beautiful downtown Zionsville. Mark your calendars. We’ll be growing great roses, sharing rose information and growing great friendships!

A big thank you to Linda Kimmel for her leadership as President the past two years.


Jo Ellen Meyers Sharp joined us and gave a program on Garden Party Planning. Our evening ended with garden Q and A with Jo Ellen. And, no matter the subject, we couldn’t stump her! She is a fount of garden knowledge. We were so glad to have her with us.
