On April 19, 2008, some of the Albuquerque Rose Society’s members were honored at the Pacific Southwest District Convention in Mesa, Arizona.
Leah Watterberg was named Judge Emeritus in recognition of the years and hard work she spent as an ARS Accredited Rose Judge.
Claudia Bonnett was awarded the Silver Medal for outstanding service to the PSWD. This is the highest award a district can bestow.
Carroll Sue Wagner was named Outstanding District Consulting Rosarian. If you have ever attended one of the Albuquerque Rose Society’s pruning demonstrations in March at the Wyoming Library, you have undoubtedly met Carroll Sue.
Ron Feurer was named Outstanding District Horticulture Judge. Ron is a member of the Palm Desert Rose Society. However, Ron is graduate of Albuquerque’s 2005 American Rose Society National Rose Arrangement Judging School, and we are very proud of him!
Congratulations to all for these honors!
