The

The “Year of the Rose – 2002” celebration is about to begin. I hope that by now each local society has a calendar of events planned to promote our national flower, the rose. This is an excellent opportunity to educate the public and gain new members in our societies. The ARS/Home Depot Program is in its final stages of preparation; Steve Pyrak will be contacting participating CRs with more information. YOTR Chair, Peg Newill has been with working with local society contacts to develop plans for the yearlong event, and Dr. Jim Hering with the help of Randy Lady has finished the YOTR slide presentation. Local societies are encouraged to publish information and pictures of activities on the district website www.buckeyerose.com. It is time to join, or renew, as a Patron of the Buckeye District for 2002. This program supports our on-going efforts and helps to build a reserve that may be used for special projects. You may also elect to become a Patron of the American Rose Society at the same time. I encourage your consideration in joining others who are helping in this effort. Looking ahead, the district has a number of events planned for 2002. On Saturday, 2 February 23, 2002, CR Chair, Steve Pyrak has planned a Consulting Rosarian Audit and School in Columbus at the Franklin Park Conservatory. A registration form can be found elsewhere in this bulletin. An Old Garden Rose Seminar is planned for April 6 th , the day before the Spring District Meeting. Guest speakers include Oline Reynolds, George Meiling, Betty Fagerstrom, and Jon and Lois Weir. We also plan to have a district slide show this spring with the results and winners presented at the district meeting. The Millstream Rose Society will be the hosts of the 6 th annual Top Gun Club meeting on July 27, 2002. Finally, the Buckeye District Fall Conference and Rose Show will be held September 20-22, 2002 in Marion, Ohio. A national ARS event will also be held in the Buckeye state in 2002. The ARS National Miniature Rose Show and Conference will be held in Columbus on the weekend of July 12-14, 2002. Details concerning these events can be found in The Buckeye Rose Bulletin or the district website. Best wishes for 2002, Terri A. Lady Buckeye District Director 4th Annual All Miniature Show and Convention By Randy Lady Columbus was last host to a national convention in 1992. On July 12 - 14, 2002, Columbus will again be hosting a national American Rose Society event - the fourth annual American Rose Society All-Miniature Rose Conference. Like the previous three conventions, this will be a celebration of the miniature rose. Brian Burley is the convention chairman, and my wife, Terri, and I are the show cochairpersons. Along with our committee and individual chairpersons, we are planning an action-packed and informative weekend. Like previous conventions, this will be a weekend event. Activities will begin Friday evening and finish Sunday afternoon. Dennis Bridges will be our featured hydridizer and will be introducing an new mini rose honoring a rosarian known by reader’s of American Rose. I’m sure Dennis and Suzy will make the weekend even more enjoyable. The convention will be held at the Holiday Inn in Worthington, just north of Columbus on the I270 outerbelt. This is easily accessible from

major interstate highways I70, I75 and I71, along with the Columbus International Airport. Special hotel rates will be available for convention attendees and will be listed in future editions of American Rose along with the full schedule. The hotel offers shuttle service and there are many hotels and restaurants in the area. Friday evening will begin with a welcome reception for everyone to relax, get to know other mini growers, or catch up with old friends. Saturday morning will begin bright and early with the rose show. We are putting together a full and challenging schedule for all mini rose exhibitors and arrangers. Remember, mini roses are easy to bring when traveling. While judging is proceeding, attendees may take part in a full day of seminars and presentations. Some of these will be educational, some will be question and answer sessions, and others will be just for fun. The awards banquet will be held Saturday evening to honor the show winners of the day 3 along with the 2002 Mini Hall of Fame winners and 2003 Award of Excellence winners. Of course, the evening will conclude with lively socializing and discussion of the show and mini roses. Sunday will conclude the convention with a garden tour of some of the best gardens in central Ohio. First will be the Columbus Park of Roses, which features more than 10,000 roses. Sadly, most of these are not miniatures. We will then proceed to some of the best gardens of miniature rose growers and exhibitors in Ohio. We should be back to the hotel by mid-afternoon to start the journey home. I hope all the miniature rose growers and exhibitors can make the trip to Ohio next July. If you want some early information or are interested in participating in the programs, contact Brian Burley at 614-864-9404, bburley@ee.net , or Terri and I at 419-562- 1451, rlady@cybrtown.com . Response Letter from ARS President, Dr. Tommy Cairns In response to the many letters of sympathy and support received from rose societies around the world after the tragic events of September 11th, ARS President, Dr. Tommy Cairns issued the following message: I am deeply moved by your kind and thoughtful words in this the darkest days in American history. From around the world I have been fortunate to receive, as ARS President, so many messages from national rose societies expressing their deep sense of grief for our losses. These wonderful messages, just like yours, have given compassion and sympathy to help us through such dark days. The rose in our daily lives is always there…from birth…to marriage…to death. It’s presence is often understated and rarely overstated, but it is everywhere chronicling our lives from the heights of enjoyment and celebration to the depths of despair and agony. This week has been the darkest in American history and I am comforted by the expression of people to give roses to amplify their grief and sympathy. Roses are a gift from God and to share them is wonderful. In this our darkest hours roses need not be center stage but rather their quiet presence of beauty, always there, always present, always comforting, always reassuring, always a symbol of American life and liberty…our National Floral Emblem. All these messages are indeed reassuring in a time of crisis and mourning. However, like the phoenix the American people will rebuild from the ashes with a much higher regard for life and
