Welcome to the 52nd Rose Festival

ONE of the Rose City's longstanding events will be held this Friday.

The ladies of St Mark's Women's Guild look forward to welcoming everyone to their 52nd Rose Festival in the Parish Hall, Grafton St.

The competition schedule details the various ways that roses can be displayed.

Copies are available from the back of St Mark's church or by email from sue.nalder@gmail.com

There is no charge to enter the competition and winners receive cash prizes and the kudos of having their name engraved on one of the perpetual trophies. Entries are to be brought to the Parish Hall from 8.30 to 10.30am on October 10.

The trophy and prize presentation starts at 1.30pm and the formalities will be followed by musical entertainment from Yangan's Sue Needer, a delicious afternoon tea with home-baked treats, a mini cent sale, spot raffles and the drawing of the main raffle.

Entry of $6 covers all of this as well as viewing the rose display.

St Mark's Women's Guild appreciates the participation of long-term exhibitors and encourages new rose growers to enter the competition in any section.

They should note, however, that there is also a special section just for novices. The guild is grateful for the ongoing support of The Southern Downs Regional Council, The Warwick Credit Union, Mrs Judy Hall, Mrs Dorrie Lynch and the Family of the late Halvor Guy. The Champion Rose will again be displayed in the crystal vase dedicated last year in memory of Mrs Hazel Hoffman.
