Peter Beales Talk in Victoria

Sunday July 10 2005 - 3:00 PM
David Lam Auditorium, UVic

Peter Beales' talk in Victoria on July 10 2005 was a success, the auditorium was near full with rose enthusiats. He gave an interesting talk about the use of roses in the landscape, and graciously signed books for all who lined up at the end of the seminar. We sold 34 books for Mr. Beales, gained 11 new members, and raised $500 each from the admissions for the Peninsular Rose Club and the Canadian Rose Society.
