The Colonial District Pre-Spring Meeting
and Seminars will be held March 3 & 4 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.
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
Shaner - Manager Ruby Tuesdays
Vickie Stevens - Preschool School Teacher
