How many days of sunshine did we have this month? I remember two. While we do live in the land of “sunshine” this year has been quite a challenge with all the rain around. Our yard, plants, including roses, have suffered greatly with the lack of sunshine and overabundance of rain. By this time, after fall pruning, we should be seeing long stems and large buds. In fact, we are seeing just the opposite, short stems and tiny buds. The usual fall flush for our fall shows does not look too promising. That being said, I must remind myself that this weather condition cannot dampen our spirits. Life throws many things at us and we should be able to enjoy and learn from each and every experience. Ralph and I had a great time in Syracuse at the Fall National Convention and Rose Show. There too the weather had affected their roses so there were not nearly as many entries as you would generally see. The show included arrangements as well as a photo section. Many folks are jumping on the photo bandwagon and showing their talents in photography. The ARS has put together guidelines for photography in an ARS show and they were testing it in Syracuse. I’m sure we will be thrilled when the final product is released. Hopefully we can then include photography in our local show. The fall convention in Valdosta is quickly coming and it is still not too late to register and attend this weekend (October23-25). I spoke with the ladies at the Crescent Garden Center in Valdosta this week. They are so excited about hosting our tour on Sunday October25. This promises to be a nice way to end our weekend in the area. Thanks to Missy Burton for helping us with arranging it as part of our convention. I’m looking forward to our October meeting at Dudley Farms and dinner at Napolitano’s afterwards. We hardly ever have time to just relax together. This will be a time for it. I will keep the business portion brief. We do have a lot to think about as we go into the end of the year and planning for the Mid-Winter meeting in January. Please let’s all keep thinking and looking for items to include on our website. Dan is looking for good articles, Linda is looking for good pictures, Ralph is looking for contacts we may reference as useful to our visitors to the website. Social Media is here to stay. It needs to be our friend. Bring your questions for our consulting Rosarians, we will take a few minutes to answer these. Looking forward to seeing you at Dudley, 2:00 pm.

Ralph Stream stated the trophies were covered. Jean Stream asked for permission to borrow supplies from Gainesville for the convention including clerking supplies. She was given permission to use what is needed. Lee Wiegand offered to host the yard sale – Oct. 14th subject to Lee’s schedule. Lee Kline made a motion that we host the The Mid-Winter meeting - January 15 – 17. Seconded by Ralph Stream. Passed. Linda Rengarts said that she would handle registration. Mary Menoski will assist. Ann Sherwood would work on the theme. The Alligator Creek Garden Club( located in Stark ) requested a speaker from our society. Their meetings are held at the Bradford County Extention on the second Thursday of the month. Art Wade offered Linda Rengarts as the sacrificial lamb and Linda was too dumbfounded to say no. I think that Art Wade was bamboozled into assisting some how. The meeting was adjourned in peace and harmony at 4:45 P.M.
