The Shenandoah Rose Garden Club, Division I, was organized in November 1964 with the purpose of expanding our knowledge in gardening, conservation and nature, participating in service and community projects, and enlarging social contact.

Meeting September through May on the third Monday morning of each month, our members enjoy light refreshments while the club business is transacted. There are no meetings in the months of June, July and August. A member gives a devotional at each meeting.

The club has fantastic programs on a variety of topics relating to the environment, horticulture and the community. The club also participates in field trips to areas of interest. In November of 2014 Shenandoah Rose Garden Club celebrated its 50th Anniversary. View photos HERE.
