Great Lakes District Of The American Rose Society

                      Welcome to the Great Lakes District Web Site Affiliated with The American Rose Society




Welcome to the Great Lakes District Web Site!  This site hosts a lot of very useful information.  If you click on the links above you will be taken to the Photo Gallery (Under Construction), Members page where you can join our chat lot.  About us is the page where you can find what offices are held and by whom.  You can contact us with a simple click.  Our links page is always looking to expand, so if you would like your page added, email the webmaster of this site and he'll see what he can do.  Finally we have our Bylaws that govern our society.  This page will also have upcoming events such as Conventions and Rose Shows.  Our Calendar page will have all of that information on it soon including local society rose shows along with district and national information.

 Check back often to see what other things are being updated!


Please get the dates of your events to me so I can update the Calendar of Events to keep it as up-to-date as possible.  The layout that works the best is: Hosting Society, Location (physical address) and contact information to whoever is going to chair the event.  Our Calendar of Events should fill up quickly.  Thank you everyone!   -  Please put "GLD NEWS" in the subject line or it may be deleted!  I scan for SPAM.
