Rose society supports health care

NANAIMO – Mid-Island Rose Society donates $500 to Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation.

Mid-Island Rose Society’s generosity continues to bloom with recent donations to charities, thanks to the success of its annual plant sale.

The rose society has given $500 to the Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation to help purchase a new CT Scanner for Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.

Additionally, members contributed to the Fort McMurray Relief Fund, the Nanaimo SPCA, and the Nanaimo Salvation Army. The group also gives its time to maintain the Old Rose Garden at Huddlestone Park in Lantzville and members serve as expert judges at garden competitions across the Island. The next plant sale is set for April 2017 .
