County Fair

The Salem Rose Society had a grand presence today at the Marion County Fair here in Salem.  Our home-grown roses really brightened up the Fair's floral display, as you will see in the photos below.  The Fair continues through Sunday, July 15, so the roses will have a lengthy exposure.  As a result, we might be able to impress and recruit some new members.  Remember, you may click on the photos to enlarge them.

Update of August 25, 2012:   Some more photos just got delivered to me via internet snail mail.  Below are some of our very finest Rose Society members tending our rose display at the Fair.  We really have a nice banner, don't we?  And some very nice roses!
